Grambling State University Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics, Dr. Trayvean Scott continued building his executive staff with the addition of Ventric Fletcher as the Assistant AD for Athletic Academic Services. 

“We’re very pleased to welcome Ventric Fletcher into the Grambling family,” Scott said. “His background and expertise make him a perfect fit for our department.
