There were signs all over the campus of Davidson applauding and inviting Curry back to the school, which has located approximately 25 miles north of Charlotte, which is where Curry spent most of his childhood.

Davidson president Doug Hicks
During the ceremony, Davidson president Doug Hicks remarked that the graduates had demonstrated “drive and tenacity” to achieve their degrees. “It would have been simple and uncomplicated for you to drop out of college and not earn your degree. On the other hand, in reaction to that notion, you did what you did to the other 29 NBA organizations and said, “night, night!”
Curry fought back the tears as he got his degree and follow the crowd’s request to toss his cap into the air as they urge him to do so.
Sonya Curry has quoted as saying that “now you can breathe and say, ‘Check, has done.'” “Today, you assisted Coach McKillop in keeping his graduation percentage at 100%.
