The Montana State University community welcomed approximately 1,200 students to campus Monday, Aug. 26, 2014 during Freshman Convocation. The theme of the evening was the value of education, and Shiza Shahid, a native of Pakistan, Stanford University graduate, and co-founder and CEO of the Malala Fund, delivered the keynote address. A New York-based non-profit, the Malala Fund is dedicated to getting access to education for girls all over the world. It is named for Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl and bestselling author of "I am Malala" who was nearly killed by the Taliban for her desire to get an education. The evening also included comments from university and state officials and appearances from MSU's mascot, Champ, and the Spirit of the West marching band.
