University Of Virginia Honors Its 3 Slain Football Players With Posthumous Degrees

The University of Virginia announced plans to honor the lives of the three football players tragically killed last month. The institution will be awarding the three victims posthumous degrees. On Nov. 13, Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr. and D’Sean Perry were gunned down on a bus returning from a class trip.

According to ESPN, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Programs Rachel Most led the initiative. Most is the dean of the College of Arts & Sciences. All three players were studying majors in Most’s department.

Carla Williams, athletic director for the university, quickly granted the request for the degrees. In a presss release from the university, Williams said, “It was a great honor to be a part of presenting these diplomas to the families of Devin, Lavel and D’Sean.”
