(BSU)-26 Student-Athletes, Managers, Student-Trainers and Cheerleaders Earn Degrees in May Commencement


BOWIE, Md. – Twenty-six current and former student-athletes, student managers and student trainers were among Bowie State University graduates who received degrees in the 2013 Spring Commencement – Friday, May 17th at the University of Maryland College Park Comcast Center.  Students were able to be inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama.  She challenged more than 600 students to carry on the rich legacy of the founders of Bowie State University to promote the importance of education.

She urged the graduates to promote education regardless of their career path, saying “That is the story of Bowie State University, the commitment to educating our next generation and building ladders of opportunity for anyone willing to work for it. All of you are now part of that story”. “And with that tremendous privilege comes an important set of responsibilities – responsibilities that you inherit the moment you leave this stadium with that diploma in your hand.”

Athletic Director, Anton Goff expressed “It is always a special day when we get to celebrate the academic accomplishments of our student-athletes.  All of our coaches and staff members are absolutely proud of those 26 graduates (21 student-athletes; 2 managers; 2 cheerleaders; and 1 student trainer).  We wish them all the best and know that they will continue to be successful in the future.”
