In-person graduations likely for MSU, Minot High

Minot State University is currently planning an in-person graduation ceremony in May, according to university communications director Mike Linnell.

COVID-19 restrictions will likely mean there will be a limit of a few guests per persons and other alterations might have to be made to the usual ceremony. Linnell said there are no final plans yet.

There are no firm plans for the Minot High School graduation either but principal Scott Faul said he is fairly confident that it will also be an in-person graduation if the numbers of new coronavirus cases continue to stay low.

“If we’re green (at the low risk level) I can see a fairly traditional graduation with face masks required,” said Faul on Wednesday. Minot High traditionally holds its graduation ceremony at the MSU Dome.

Faul said it has been a few weeks since there has been a positive case of the coronavirus reported at Magic City Campus.
