Inscription.  Stevens graduated from Morgan State University in 1988 with a degree in telecommunications. But instead of pursuing a career in reporting on newsmakers she became one in a big way.

While at Morgan State University, Stevens was a world class athlete. She was a member of the school's 4×100m women's relay team that won first place in the 1986 Penn Relays. Coached by her mother, the Rev. Beatrice Holloway-Davis, a former track star. Stevens won a silver in the 4×400m relay at the 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona, Spain.

Four years later she won a gold medal in the 4×400m relay at the Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia.
