SACRAMENTO STATE SLATED TO GRADUATE 76 STUDENT-ATHLETES
Seventy-six current and former Hornet student-athletes are slated to participate in Sacramento State’s Spring Commencement this Friday, May 20, and Saturday, May 21.
In all, 67 student-athletes are scheduled to graduate this spring and nine student-athletes are slated to complete their course work by the conclusion of the summer session.
“We are excited for this group of young men and women who have represented Sacramento State in their chosen field of athletic competition and are now preparing for life after their athletic careers,” Hornet Athletics Director Terry Wanless said. “This is the ultimate compliment to each of them and to the University. To see this collective group of athletes walk down the aisle and receive their diplomas is a great thrill for their families and Hornet Athletics.
“We are very proud of them and know they are well prepared to meet life’s challenges in the future.”
During the past year, Sacramento State had 111 student-athletes earn all-academic team honors in their respective conferences.
Sacramento State’s Spring Commencement, scheduled to take place at Power Balance Pavilion (formerly Arco Arena), boasts over 4,500 graduating students from its seven colleges and more than 100 undergraduate, graduate and doctorate programs.
