The ceremony will take place in the Laughlin Health Building.

The purpose of the ceremony is to recognize and celebrate the scholastic achievement of minority and international students at MSU. Each student will receive a certificate, a gift and a special Kente stole.

The keynote speaker for the spring celebration will be Marquez Young.

A two-time MSU graduate, Young earned his Bachelor of Business Administration degree in business administration and management and his Master of Arts degree in adult and higher education.

For almost two years, he was a senior enrollment services counselor for diversity at MSU. Last fall, he accepted an enrollment advisor position at Sinclair Community College in Dayton.
