Utah State University Southwest is proud to celebrate its class of 2022, comprised of 84 graduates. The Class of 2022 consists of individuals earning 12 associate, 44 bachelor’s, 26 master’s degrees, one graduate certificate and one doctorate degree. The two-session graduation ceremony was April 21 and 22.

“All of you who are here tonight to celebrate the completion of a USU degree represent the unique character of one of the 11 counties represented by the southwest region,” said Nancy Glomb, associate vice president for the Southwest Region. “I mentioned several factors that contribute to the quality of the Southwest Centers, but most important is the quality of you all, the students, who exemplify perseverance, commitment and the ability to engage in self-directed learning. Congratulations again to all of you.”

USU Southwest celebrated graduates with a ceremony April 21 at Juab Junior High School in Nephi and on April 22 at the Iron County Fair Building in Parowan.

In each session Glomb welcomed the graduates. The class received a personalized message of congratulations and advice from Utah Gov. Spencer Cox. USU President Noelle E. Cockett conferred the degrees virtually, and the graduates received their diplomas. The celebration closed with remarks from USU Alumni Association President Spencer Palmer.
