Public health restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic may have forced Utah State University to call off its 2020 commencement on the Logan campus this year, but USU President Noelle Cockett told graduates in a video message that they were “front and center in our minds and our hearts.” Cockett’s message was released on Thursday, the same day graduation rites to celebrate the university’s 7,000 graduates were originally scheduled. “Like many of you, I wish we were gathered today with family and friends in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum on the USU Logan campus,” Cockett said. “However, we can’t let this day go by without acknowledgement and celebration of your accomplishments of a degree from Utah State University. Congratulations graduates! While physical distance separates us, you are front and center in our minds and our hearts,” Cockett said.
