In an effort to protect everyone's health and to give people who have worked so long and hard the graduation experience, Mississippi State University held several smaller graduations. Of particular note was the PhD. ceremony hosted by the College of Arts & Sciences. Held in a hall that usually seats 450, 14 PhD. graduates, dissertation advisors and some families and friends took seats appropriately distant from one another. They watched PhD recipients receive their hoods and officially become doctors.
The three Mississippi State University history graduates who received their PhDs were Matthew Himel, Ryan Semmes and Aaron Thomas. They are pictured in the moving picture screen above.
Our Meridian campus held a separate graduation. There three history majors distiguished themselves. Each earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average during their undergraduate career. Kayla Jordan has already started in graduate school with us and another begins next year.
We congratulate everyone who graduated this fall and last spring.
