A reception for the graduates and their families will follow the ceremony at Heritage Hall.

In a press release, Dr. Susan Wolff, CEO and Dean at GFC MSU, stated that commencement is a wonderful day to celebrate the students’ accomplishments.

"Many of our students overcome great hardships in order to walk across the stage at graduation," she said. "Many raise families while going to school, work other jobs, or serve in the military. This is a truly amazing group of individuals who are celebrating a life-changing achievement."
