University Of Manitoba Holds Virtual Grad Ceremony

Graduates of the University of Manitoba School of Agriculture Diploma course had a virtual graduation celebration on Monday.
 
Shawn Williment, of La Riviere, is one of the co-valedictorians and will continue his studies in the degree program.
 
He talked about what school might look like in the fall.
 
"They've already announced for the fall that it's going to be online, similar to the way that we ended in the spring time," he said. "It's going to be all online, virtual classes, so that will be a new challege. It makes you adjust your own personal schedule, your time management skills you have to sharpen up a bit, not having the routine of having to go to campus every day."
 
In total, 64 students received their ag diplomas.
 
Pete Giesbrecht from Winkler received the Governor General’s Bronze Medal for the highest standing in the two year course.
 
Noah de Rocquigny from St. Claude received the President’s Medal given annually to a student who combines scholarship with outstanding qualities of leadership.
