On May 7, eight students in Bemidji State University’s Honors Program were virtually recognized for their accomplishments in the program by President Hensrud and the Director of BSU’s Honors and Liberal Education Programs Season Ellison, who is also an assistant professor of history.

Graduates were asked to pre-record a one-minute recap of their Honors theses to be revealed during the virtual event and recently received their commencement stoles to wear at the formal commencement exercise held at a later date.
