KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Neyland Stadium will hold commencement ceremonies for students, and the 81 student-athletes for the first time in the University of Tennessee’s history.

The 81 student-athletes have set school records, earned All-America honors, and nine of those student-athletes have earned master’s degrees.

“There are so many moments I’m grateful to be a part of as an AD, but the graduation of our student-athletes has always been one of my favorite achievements to celebrate […] Having been forced to adjust their academic routines through the pandemic—while also balancing the demands of training and competition—this year’s new grads have navigated challenges no one could have ever predicted. I’m thrilled that they get to commemorate their accomplishments with their families in such a unique way at Neyland Stadium.”
