Lake Superior State University Golden Graduates posed with President Tom Pleger for their annual group photo when LSSU’s venerable mascot, Seamore the Seaduck, “photobombed” the picture. Eleven Golden Grads led the processional of 2015 graduates into Abel Arena Saturday for LSSU’s commencement on May 2 in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Golden Graduates are alumni who attended LSSU when it was the Sault Branch of the Michigan College of Mining and Technology prior to 1965.
