Justin Graves

Justin Graves (B.S. '12, M.A. Ed. '14) is a two­time Hokie currently based out of the D.C. metro area. Justin came to Blacksburg in 2008 as a freshman, stuck around in 2012 for graduate school, and joined the MAAB later that year to further his commitment to serving and developing successful underrepresented students at Virginia Tech. Graduating with a master's degree in Educational Leadership & Policy Studies (focused in higher education administration), Justin focused his graduate­level work and community service on at­risk students, student leadership involvement and development, and forging positive relationships with university administrators. He served on the search committee that chose Dr. Timothy Sands as the 16th president of the university and was recognized in 2012 by First Lady Michelle Obama for his life's motto, "Life is all about what you have done for other people."
