Tentative plans for End-of-the-Year events

Scheduled for Sunday, August 9
Phase 1 of the Governor's reopening plan is set to begin May, 15. Should progress continue in the eradication of COVID-19, LSMSA plans to hold in-person celebrations on Sunday, August 9. 

"It is important for us to offer these annual traditions for the LSMSA Community," said Dr. Steve Horton, LSMSA executive director. "While a one-day celebration will be hectic, these are meaningful milestones for our students, and we hope to offer them in-person as allowed within state guidelines."

The following dates/events are tentative and subject to change based on the state's guidelines for large gatherings.

All events will be held in Northwestern State University's Prather Coliseum.

9:30 a.m.    Junior Ring Ceremony
11:00 a.m.    Commencement Rehearsal
12:30 p.m.    Senior Recognition Ceremony
3:00 p.m.    Commencement

At this time, LSMSA is planning for open seating, taking into account any and all requirements for social distancing. However, should the state restrict attendance numbers of gatherings, restrictions may be put in place for the number of guests allowed per student.
