Stephen Curry Receives Bachelor of Arts Degree and Induction Into Davidson College Hall Of Fame

Winning an NBA Championship and his first Finals MVP alone would be a great year, but, it seems like Stephen Curry just wasn’t satisfied with those accomplishments. Curry was recently honored, according to CNN by his alma mater, Davidson College in several ways, 13 years after leaving the school to become a future Hall of Fame NBA athlete.

Curry, who earlier this year earned his Bachelor of Arts degree, with a major in Sociology from Davidson, was unable to attend the graduation ceremony as he was pursuing the NBA Championship. The college honored him Wednesday by allowing him to obtain the degree he attained. The sharpshooter also had the number he wore at Davidson during his collegiate career retired.

When they retired his number 30 jersey, he became the first athlete from Davidson from any sport to have that honor bestowed upon him. But, there’s more!

Curry was also inducted into Davidson College’s Hall of Fame.

“I get kind of awkward at times when I walk into this gym and see this many people showing up just for me and the celebration of what, you know, the graduation and the Hall of Fame induction and seeing my jersey in the rafters,” the four-time NBA champion said.

“But every single person that I got to play with, that coached me, help me when I was hurt and injured and trying to find ways to get back on the court. All the faculty and staff that supported me through my three years here. I really feel like this is why this matters so much.”

According to Davidson College, Curry just needed to complete one semester to graduate from the college. With the assistance of several professors, two from Davidson, one from Stanford, and another from UC Santa Cruz who taught Curry while they were both at Davidson, the future Hall of Famer was able to finish the coursework.
