Damian Lillard graduates Weber State University

 

Damian Lillard graduates from Weber State University.

Portland Trail Blazers baller Damian Lillard graduated from Weber State University with a degree in Professional Sales in the College of Applied Science & Technology.

After entering the draft during his junior year, Damian continued to pursue his degree through extension programs during his NBA playing schedule.

As I finished my junior year and opted to enter the NBA draft early, I knew it would be hard to accomplish the goal I had set. I’m so thankful that WSU and its faculty were able to work with me and help guide me along the way to graduation.

It has always been my goal to complete my degree.

Receiving my degree will be an extremely proud moment for me and my family. It’s one of the greatest accomplishments of my life.

Below is a clip of Damian receiving his degree.
