NASHVILLE --- Tennessee State University celebrated this year’s graduating class on Saturday with the 2018 Spring Commencement Ceremony at the Gentry Center.

TSU enjoyed another successful year in the classroom with a total of 37 seniors from the athletic department hearing their name called as part of Saturday’s ceremony for those graduating in May or with expected summer graduations. Combined with the graduates from the winter ceremony, Tennessee State Athletics had 52 graduates during the 2017-18 academic year.

“It brings me great joy to see our student-athletes accomplish great things academically,” TSU Assistant Athletic Director for Academic Services Jeremy Perry said. “College graduation is a huge milestone and to see the hard work of our senior athletes come to fruition is priceless.”

Among TSU’s graduates this spring are NFL hopefuls, team and individual Ohio Valley Conference Champions and NCAA National Qualifiers.

Nationally recognized motivational speaker Dr. Eric Thomas served as the undergraduate commencement speaker on Saturday.
