Pictured at MSU's Television Center, MSU President Mark E. Keenum prepares to recognize 3,300 graduates and their families during Friday's [May 1] virtual spring commencement. Broadcasting statewide via MSTV and online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the occasion represents only the third time in the land-grant university’s 142-year history that a traditional graduation ceremony has not been possible, with the earlier times during the Spanish Flu pandemic and World War II.
