Saturday, Sept. 12 was a great day at Mayville State University. It was the day of our much-anticipated first football game of the season. Anticipation was high for a number of reasons.
Mayville State University alumnus Dr. John Lyng will deliver the annual commencement address at Mayville State University Friday, Sept. 25. The commencement ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. at the Mayville State University Lewy Lee Fieldhouse. Mayville State University’s annual commencement exercises are normally held in the month of May, but the emerging coronavirus pandemic last spring prompted the decision to delay until September.
The long-awaited Farmers Bowl community celebration will be held Saturday, Sept. 26 in Mayville. The event which is hosted annually by the MSU Foundation and its partners celebrates the agricultural heritage of the Mayville-Portland and Traill County area. While the annual festivities will go on, there will be some changes related to the coronavirus pandemic. Keeping the members of the community safe is the top priority for organizers.
An anonymous Mayville State University donor has come forward for a second time and is issuing a challenge to all Mayville State alumni and friends. The donor will match dollar-for-dollar all gifts made to fall 2021 football scholarships, up to a total of $20,000. Gifts must be received in the MSU Foundation by Nov. 7, 2020. All funds received will help the football staff as they work to recruit and retain quality student-athletes for the MSU Comets football team. Funding will be used for scholarships awarded in the fall of 2021.
We’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to watch our student-athletes as they compete at the Lewy Lee Fieldhouse and Jerome Berg Field in the fall sports season. The excitement of home games was unleashed last Sunday, when the Comets volleyball team hosted Valley City State and Hastings (Neb.) College. The Comets came out on top in both contests! The Comets lost a nail-bighter to Dakota Wesleyan in Valley City on Saturday. Congratulations to Coach Johnson and her team for a great start to the season!
