MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Northern Michigan University will hold a virtual celebration honoring all 2020 graduates at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6.

The event will include messages from President Fritz Erickson, Board Chair Steve Mitchell, May 2020 graduate Cecilia Ruiz and student-selected faculty speaker Kia Jane Richmond of the English Department.

Serving as a comprehensive commencement event for May, August and December graduates, the celebration is being held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 virus and associated safety protocols.
