Montana State University-Northern held two sets of graduation ceremonies Saturdays, using COVID-19-compliant ceremonies to honor candidates whose ceremonies were delayed by the pandemic last year.

The ceremonies were for graduates as far back as 2019 who would have been honored in the 2020 ceremonies.

Candidates for graduation walk Saturday toward Montana State University-Northern's commencement ceremonies in the Armory Gymnasium.

The commencement ceremonies were not open to the public, but each graduate was allowed to bring a maximum of five guests, including children, to allow for social distancing.

The ceremonies also were split into two parts, with commencement for graduates of the College of Arts, Sciences and Education and of the College of Health Sciences held at 10 a.m. and for graduates of the College of Technical Sciences held at 2 p.m.

Both ceremonies were held in Northern's Armory Gymnasium.

Little Rivers Institute Director Erica McKeon-Hanson was the speaker at the 10 a.m. ceremony and Northern junior Alec Breding was the speaker at the 2 p.m. ceremony.

Northern had 633 eligible to graduate, 267 women and 366 men, with a total of 1,081 degrees, 153 certificates, 484 associate, 405 bachelor's and 39 master's degrees.
