2017 May Commencement Speaker: Arthur Moats

Arthur Moats and Family

We are happy to announce that Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats ('12) will deliver our May commencement address. He is a dedicated alumnus, devoted to serving JMU, the United Way, Ronald McDonald House Charities and other deserving organizations. Arthur was named the Steelers’ nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award because of his extensive work in the community and his dedication to giving back. Arthur and his wife, Shonda, continue to play a significant role at JMU through their involvement with athletics and the arts. They are wonderful examples of engaged citizens and we are excited to have them back on campus for commencement.
