Mountain State University will have its final graduation ceremony of its almost-80-year history on Wednesday evening at the school's main campus in Beckley, West Virginia. The school has been fighting to keep its accreditation since June. That’s when the Higher Learning Commission found the school was focused on increasing enrollment rather than providing students with academic support. Andrew Wessels is the public relations manager for the school.</p> Tue, 18 Dec 2012 21:10:51 +0000 Tasnim Shamma 17910 at http://wfae.org Mountain State Closes Hickory, Mooresville Campuses
