The theme, "Spartans Inspire Success," highlights and recognizes the ways in which Spartans use their time, talents and experiences as tools to uplift and strengthen others. Susan Packard, former HGTV COO, author and MSU alumna, was selected as grand marshal for the University’s 2019 homecoming celebration.
