Fifty-Eight student-athletes graduate from St. Aug

Posted May 8, 2013

— Fifty-eight student-athletes and cheerleaders graduated from Saint Augustine's University this past weekend at the school's 2013 Commencement, held on the lawn of the campus Quadrangle. 

Twenty-five percent (25%) of the graduating class were student-athletes and cheerleaders. The total number of graduates was 228. The percentage surpasses last year’s percent number (22%).

Among the graduates were All-American football player Tyron Laughinghouse (Greenville, N.C.), who received numerous national, regional and conference awards including Beyond Sports Network Division II Special Teams Football Player of the Year and CIAA Special Teams Football Player of the Year. CIAA Baseball Player of the Year Ariel Polanco (Harlem, N.Y.) and football player Franklin James (Hampton, Va.) also were in the graduating class. James received The Fannie Glovenia Carter Baker Scholarship, given each year in honor of President Dianne Boardley Suber’s grandmother, Mrs. Glovenia Carter Baker, to a graduating senior.

Cynthia Marshall, the Senior Vice President of Human Resources for AT&T Services, Inc., delivered the commencement address at the event on Sunday, May 5, 2013. The class of 2013 made history as the first graduating class of Saint Augustine's University. On Aug. 1, 2012, the school changed its name from Saint Augustine’s College to Saint Augustine's University.

The ceremony capped another successful academic year for the school's athletic program. St. Aug won CIAA championships in five sports this season including men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s indoor track and field, women’s indoor track and field and men’s outdoor track and field. The men’s track & field team won the NCAA Division II indoor championship, and the women’s basketball team won the CIAA team highest grade point average award in its sport.
