Southwest Baptist University students were recognized recently for their contributions to their academic areas and divisions during the 2020-21 academic year.

The 2020-21 honorees include Eli McGrady of Pittsburg, a Skyline High School graduate, who received the Baker Book Award. He also was named a Gordon & Judy Dutile Honors Program graduate.

SBU will host five spring commencement ceremonies — three undergraduate ceremonies on Friday, May 14, and two graduate ceremonies on Saturday, May 15 — in order to comply with health department guidelines for gathering sizes. The ceremonies also will be available for viewing simultaneously on livestream. Go to for more information about the ceremonies.
