PRAIRIE VIEW – A total of 57 Prairie View A&M student-athletes and athletics support staff members are slated to earn their degrees following the conclusion of the spring semester, including one master’s degree.

Nearly every athletics program at PVAMU will be represented during spring commencement, set to be held virtually on May 9 at 10 a.m.  Additionally, the departments of sports information, equipment and sports medicine will have at least one graduate.

Defensive lineman Stephen Scott will receive a master’s degree in Special Education Curriculum and Instruction.
