MSU recognizes graduates at Fall 2022 Commencement 

Morehead State University honored nearly 500 graduates at ceremonies on Dec. 10. 

Graduates celebrated their academic accomplishments with family, friends, loved ones and the MSU community. It included congratulations from MSU President Dr. Jay Morgan.  

The ceremony honored graduates of the Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the Elmer R. Smith College of Business and Technology, the College of Science, and the Ernst and Sara Lane Volgenau College of Education.    

Heather L. Randolph (Class of 2022) of Sandy Hook served as the commencement speaker representing the College of Science. MSU ROTC commissioned Randolph as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army Reserves Nursing Corps. Randolph's immediate goal after graduation is to become an intensive care unit (ICU) nurse with long-term career aspirations to become a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA).  

"I hope each of us achieve every goal we set and make steps toward a better tomorrow," Randolph said. "The world is constantly changing. We can all envision a better future. So let us make efforts to bring this vision to life. As we take those next steps, wherever those lead us, I hope you strive to better not only yourself but those around you. Be that person that goes the extra mile."  

ROTC students commissioned as second lieutenant during the ceremony were Isaac David Crumbacker (Class of 2022) of Finchville; Benjamin Glen Hutchinson (Class of 2022) of Morehead; Nicholas Austin J. Kline (Class of 2022) of Beecher City, Illinois; and Heather L. Randolph (Class of 2022) of Sandy Hook. Maj. Stephen Strack administered the oath. These ROTC students were also recognized in a separate ceremony on Dec. 9, along with commissioned ROTC students John F. Greene (Class of 2022) of Lexington and Elisabeth K. Hufana (Class of 2022) of Lexington.
