Sean Combs to speak at university commencement
WASHINGTON (AP) — Entertainer and entrepreneur Sean Combs will deliver Howard University’s commencement speech this year in Washington.
The school announced Tuesday that Combs will receive an honorary degrees as a trailblazer in his field.
Combs was a Howard student in the late 1980s. He will receive an honorary doctorate in the humanities. He went on to create his Puff Daddy persona and built his own business and brand. Last year he launched an all-music TV channel, Revolt, aiming to create the ESPN of music. It airs in about 20 million U.S. homes.
University President Wayne Frederick says Combs’ entrepreneurial spirit was sparked at Howard.
