Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs announced its plans for commencement on Monday.

The ceremony will be held Saturday, May 22 at SPAC.

It will be an in-person event and will be open to the entire senior class, provided they follow health and safety guidelines.

However, family and guests will have to watch the livestream on Skidmore’s website.

Skidmore will bestow honorary degrees on Cornel West, an author and activist, and Janet Guthrie, the first woman ever to compete in the Indianapolis 500 and the Daytona 500. Both will address the graduates.
