Commencement Details

Calvin Smyre

Calvin Smyre, State Representative for the Georgia General Assembly, 135th District

We are delighted to announce that Morehouse School of Medicine’s inaugural Winter Commencement Exercises will be held IN PERSON in the Louis W Sullivan National Center for Primary Care Auditorium. In order that we follow CDC COVID-19 protocols, we have invited a limited number of family and friends to join in the celebration.

MSM’s first-ever winter ceremony will feature the Honorable Calvin Smyre, State Representative for the Georgia General Assembly, 135th District. Representative Smyre was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 1974 as its youngest member at 26 years of age and currently serves as chairman of the House Minority Caucus. We look forward to hearing his message to the Class of 2021.

This year’s exercises are noteworthy in other ways too. This commencement includes the inaugural class of our Physician Assistant Studies program.

We also will hold our traditional Commencement events, Class Day and the President’s Reception. Both take place in the Louis W Sullivan National Center for Primary Care Thursday, December 16, beginning at 4pm EST.

Be sure to check back frequently for more details as they become official. We look forward to SEEING you!
