Murray State University and Western Kentucky University will both hold commencement ceremonies tomorrow.
U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell will be the keynote speaker at Murray State's graduation at 10 am at the CFSB Center. School officials say approximately 1,400 undergraduate and graduate students are candidates for graduation.
McConnell has represented Kentucky in the U.S. Senate longer than anyone else in Commonwealth history and says it's an honor to be invited to speak to the Racer graduates.
Meanwhile, Western Kentucky University will host three separate ceremonies at E.A. Diddle Arena in Bowling Green. Candidates from the Potter College of Arts and Letters will walk across the stage at 9:30 am. Graduates from the College of Health and Human Services Gordon Ford College of Business will be up at 2 pm and students from the Ogden College of Science and Engineering College of Education and Behavioral Sciences are set to go at 6 pm.
The WKU Alumni Association invites all graduates and their families to stop by the Augenstein Alumni Center on campus between 11 am and 6 pm Saturday for an open house.
