For Immediate Release
OKMULGEE, Oklahoma– The College of the Muscogee Nation’s 12th graduation will take place at the Mvskoke Dome on Friday, April 23, 2021. The graduation will recognize both the Class 2021 and Class of 2020, since graduation ceremonies were canceled last spring. The graduation speaker is Muscogee (Creek) Nation Principal Chief David Hill.
The College of the Muscogee Nation is pleased to host an in-person graduation to celebrate the accomplishments of the classes of 2020 and 2021. “While we are anxious to get back to our normal routines, we are continuing to take the necessary COVID safety precautions to host our combined 12th and 13th gradations,” said Dr. Monte Randall, CMN President.
“The decision to hold an in person graduation with limited guests came about by request of the 2021 graduates. The CMN graduation committee reviewed the graduate’s request, the current situation of COVID cases, and the direction of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. With the support of Chief Hill and MCN Recreation Department we were able to make the necessary accommodations to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates this year at the Dome.”
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 protocols, the ceremony is closed to the public. Graduates are allowed a small number of guests, and each attendee must have a valid ticket. All attendees must wear masks, have temperature checked, and practice family social distancing.
