Morehead State University honored nearly 600 degree candidates at the 2018 Fall Commencement ceremonies on Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Academic-Athletic Center.
The event was filled with joy, applause and plenty of pictures taken as the newest alumni took the ceremonial walk across the stage, signifying the completion of their college degrees. They were greeted by MSU President Dr. Joseph A. (Jay) Morgan, who offered a congratulatory handshake to each of those completing graduate and undergraduate degree requirements.
“With 14 percent of this world’s population illiterate today, I, too, often take my ability to read and write for granted. As college graduates, we really are the lucky ones and it is up to us to go write our own stories-literally. We are able to use the well-rounded education we received from Morehead State University as a tool for positive impacts in our lives.”
