CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - The commencement took place at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau where family and friends gathered together to watch their loved ones walk across the stage and get their diploma.

Graduates we talked with say there is a lot of emotions going through their head but feel thankful for the years and support they’ve had here.

“Excitement, just a little bit of nervousness about starting the real world but I’m very excited and blessed that I’ve made it through the 6 years I’ve been here,” Janelle Mischka said.

“It’s been awesome having a support system that helps me excel and ultimately get a second degree so I’ve been blessed,” Nolan Taylor said.

The Show Me Center hosted two commencement ceremonies.

The first ceremony took place at 10 a.m. for the Harrison College of Business and Computing, College of Humanities and Social Sciences and Holland College of Arts and Media graduates.

The commencement ceremony for the graduates of the College of Education, Health and Human Studies and the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics took place at 2 p.m.

Speakers at the ceremonies include Dr. Shane Mizicko and Dr. Michael Taylor. The 1,391 graduates for this Spring commencement brings a grand total of 92,548 that have graduated from SEMO.
