TSU Athletics Honors 2020 Winter Graduates, Student-Athletes Share Their Experiences In Video Tribute

Nineteen (19) student-athletes are candidates for the 2020 Winter Commencement which will be held virtually on Saturday and Sunday on TSU.edu. Due to COVID-19, the Department of Athletics was unable to host its annual Graduation & Sash Ceremony/Reception but Assistant Athletic Director for Academic Enhancement Kim Evans and staff came up with a creative way to honor the graduates by allowing them to recap their experiences and talk about their future with a moving recap video which was filmed in-person when they picked up their sashes.

The student-athletes will be honored with a commemorative video/presentation on Saturday, Nov. 21 and Sunday, Nov. 22 on TSU’s website and social media platforms.
