Chris Paul to become an HBCU Grad on Friday!

Chris Paul to become an HBCU Grad on Friday!
Posted By: Zamara Houtston on December 20, 2022

After years of supporting HBCU causes on and off the court, Chris Paul is finally set to graduate from one.

The future Basketball Hall of Famer and current Phoenix Suns guard will take part in commencement ceremonies at Winston-Salem State University on Friday morning.



The 37-year-old has a busy schedule ahead of him as the Suns are due to play the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center on Thursday night. He will then hop on a plane and travel over 3,000 miles to receive his bachelor’s degree in communications. Just over 24 hours later the second annual Boost Mobile Chris Paul HBCU Challenge will take place in Las Vegas as four HBCUs — Hampton University, North Carolina A&T, Texas Southern and Norfolk State — will battle it out at the MGM Grand over the weekend.
