Lillard Returns for Graduation

“Anything you start you should want to finish, especially your education,” Damian Lillard told graduates during WSU’s 145th Commencement in May 2015. Shortly after delivering his speech, the NBA All-Star and former Weber State All-American picked up his diploma at the College of Applied Science & Technology (now the College of Engineering, Applied Science & Technology) convocation. Lillard, who finished his course work during the NBA off-season, earned his degree in professional sales.

Lillard’s commitment to education triggered a media frenzy, earning Weber State national coverage after his graduation went viral on social media.
