Eastern New Mexico University will celebrate the graduates of the class of 2020 with a virtual ceremony on May 30 at 10 a.m.
The singing of the national anthem and alma mater by ENMU students, including some graduating seniors, and remarks from the student body president, student regent, interim president, vice president for Academic Affairs and academic deans will be some of the highlights of this virtual event.
The ceremony will be pre-recorded and broadcast statewide at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 30, on KENW 3-1 and 3-2, and will be available as a webcast. The virtual ceremony will conclude with a showcase featuring photos submitted by the graduates to introduce our newly minted alumni.
"Throughout the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, ENMU has focused on the safety of our students, our faculty and staff," said Dr. Patrice Caldwell, interim president. "In designing this event, we consulted with the campus community about how best to celebrate our graduating students. We hope it conveys our pride in our graduates and their accomplishments and creates a happy ENMU memory for them, their families and friends."
In addition to the virtual ceremony, ENMU is giving spring and summer 2020 graduates the opportunity to walk in the Fall 2020 Commencement Ceremony in December.
