Minot, N.D. – We all know that this is a sign of a return to near normalcy.

According to the the statement, each graduate was allowed up to eight guests for the ceremony and masks were recommended, but not required.

Students waved at family members from the balcony before the ceremony and were cheered loudly as they marched into the Dome for the ceremony.
