Four-time NBA champion Steph Curry is adding another accomplishment to his stellar resume as he graduates from College. The Golden State Warriors superstar guard earned his bachelor’s in sociology in May, 13 years after he entered the NBA, but was unable to participate in the Davidson College spring graduation ceremony due to the NBA playoffs. Curry returned to his alma mater on Wednesday for an elaborate solo graduation ceremony on the university’s campus.
The NBA finals MVP walked into the Belk Arena — where he played from 2006 to 2009 — wearing a graduation cap and gown with 5,000 people in attendance, including family, friends, fans, and students. The Ohio native was also inducted into Davidson College’s Hall of Fame, and his No. 30 jersey number was retired by the school. Davidson purposely waited for Curry to graduate before retiring his number. Curry became the first Davidson athlete in any sport to have his jersey number retired, meaning the No. 30 will never be worn by another Wildcats basketball player.
Congratulations to the NBA champ!

This venture marks as the second show Anele’s production has executed since doing Netflix’s first Afrikaans series, “Ludik” with her partners Paul Buys and Frankie Du Toit. Since following the journey of how Oprah Winfrey grew her career, Anele said she wanted to follow in the same footsteps and the timing now was perfect for her.

Sho isssssssssss,” the 19-year-old star happily captioned a series of photos on social media. “We closed on our house today!!! I can’t quite process or express how I’m feeling but I’m so grateful. Days like today remind me that what is meant for you won’t miss you. Hard work pays off. My efforts will not be in vain.”
