(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Missouri Western State University announced Tuesday that the 2020 Spring Commencement has been rescheduled to Sunday, September 20 at 2 PM.

“Graduating from college is an achievement worth celebrating even in the best of times. It is even more remarkable now, when our graduates have overcome not just the normal challenges of the college experience but the extraordinary circumstances created by COVID-19,” Missouri Western President Matt Wilson said. “While social distancing guidelines make it impossible to celebrate with our seniors and their families in person as we planned on May 2, we hope that they’re able to join us later this year as we commemorate this significant milestone on their educational journey.”

Spring and summer for 2020 who are not able to attend the September 20 commencement will be invited to the December 2020 commencement. 

Commencement will be held in the Looney Complex Arena.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
