More than 1,000 students graduate from Winona State University at spring commencement

WINONA, Minn. (WKBT) – Winona State students have a reason to celebrate.

More than 1,000 students graduated at the university’s spring commencement.

The campus had three separate ceremonies for the students.

Last spring, WSU held an in-person, yet socially-distanced ceremony.

Fast forward one year, and the atmosphere was a much different story with students and their families packing the university’s gymnasium.

Masks were recommended, but not required.
