“It was a great honor to be a part of presenting these diplomas to the families of Devin, Lavel and D’Sean,” Director of Athletics Carla Williams said in a statement.
Rachel Most, associate dean for undergraduate academic programs, made the request for all three students. Chandler was an American Studies major, Davis was an African American and African Studies major and Perry was a double major in Studio Art and African American and African Studies.
All three were members of the Virginia football team and were shot returning from a class field trip to Washington, D.C. The lives of Davis, Perry and Chandler were honored at a memorial service held in John Paul Jones Arena Nov. 19.
Suspect Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. is being held without bond at Albemarle County Regional Jail, where he awaits a status hearing scheduled for Thursday.
