Brenau University held a special graduation today for six softball players who missed the official ceremony on May 3.
The Southern States Athletic Conference tournament fell on the same day as the official commencement ceremonies.
"It was the least that we could do," said Brenau President Ed Schrader. "These young women for the past four years have spent a lot of extra time representing our university around the country, very, very well, both athletically and academically. Now, as we send them off to their careers outside the diamond, you can see from their grade point averages and their majors that they are prepared to lead."
The graduating seniors are Taylor Kelley of Toccoa, Ga., Taylor Shrader of Henager, Ala., Lauren Parten of Hartwell, Ga., Anna Maness of Seagrove, N.C., Tiffany Schandera of Columbus, Ga. and Sally Duggan of Huntsville, Ala.
