Sean Combs To Get Honorary Degree From Howard University
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.15.2014



Billboard reports that Sean Combs will not only get an honorary degree from Howard University, but he'll deliver this year's commencement speech in Washington. He is one of five people to get the degree this year for being "trailblazers" in their fields.

Combs was a student at Howard in the late 80s. He will get an honorary doctorate in humanities. After his time at the university, he created his Puff Daddy persona and created his own business and brand. Last year he created his music TV channel Revolt, which currently airs in around 20 million US homes. University President Wayne Frederick said Combs "entrepreneurial spirit" started at Howard.

Also being honored are CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, transplant surgeon Clive Callender, jazz legend Benny Golson and PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi.
