Just because Liberty University will not be able to recognize its 2020 graduates this upcoming weekend does not mean Liberty Athletics cannot celebrate its newest graduates.
Liberty University was scheduled to celebrate its 47th Commencement exercises at Williams Stadium on Saturday, May 9. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has shifted its graduation celebration to the weekend of Sept. 11-12 around Liberty's first home football game of 2020 against North Carolina A&T on Sept. 12.
Liberty University was expected to honor over 21,000 total graduates this May, a number that includes 88 Liberty student-athletes.
In the absence of Graduation Week coverage, Liberty Athletics will run a series of interviews with some of these graduates on LibertyFlames.com and the athletics social media accounts this week.
Today, we wrap up the website series with Kammi Kurtz, a senior member of the women's track & field/cross country program, who has completed her bachelor's degree in nursing.
Kurtz was a three-time all-conference performer during her time with the Lady Flames. The Crown Point, Ind., native's eighth-place finish at the 2016 Big South Cross Country Championships helped seal Liberty's team title.
A member of the 2017 Big South All-Academic Team, Kurtz saw the Lady Flames win every conference track & field title they competed for during her five years on campus.
