Thirty-Four Student-Athletes Take Part in Graduation

NASHVILLE - On Saturday, 34 Tennessee State University student athletes walked across the stage during the University’s 2015 spring commencement ceremony in Hale Stadium.

Fourteen of the students completed their work during the end of the fall semester.

“I am so proud of the students’ accomplishments on and off the field or court, but nothing can compare to the achievement of earning a college degree,” commented Director of Academic Services, Dr. Johnnie Smith.  “I salute each one of them on their special day and major milestone, and wish them the best in their future endeavors.”

The graduating seniors have experienced great success, academically and athletically for the Tigers. In this season alone, the Lady Tigers won the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament and a pair of Tigers were taken in the NFL Draft. The Tigers also boasted a number of All-Americans and All-OVC selections.

On top of those accomplishments, these student-athletes have also done many of hours of community service in the Nashville area.

After their successful years with the TSU athletic programs these graduating seniors are moving on to many endeavors, including professional careers, internships and graduate school.
