Days after the guitar show took place at Minnesota State College Southeast, three instructors from the instrument repair and building programs were honored by the college.

Greg Beckwith, Brian Boedigheimer, and Steve Rossow were named Outstanding Alumni at the May 15, 2019, commencement ceremony, honoring the three graduates from the same school they graduated from years ago.

Beckwith (1992), Boedigheimer (1994) and Rossow (2001) have made the instrument repair and building programs world renowned, according to a press release from the school.

Interim President Larry Lundblad said the school is "very proud" of the instructors accomplishments.
