Singer/songwriter Jill Scott will receive an honorary doctorate from her alma mater Temple University in her native Philly.
The City of Brotherly Love-bred singer will be honored at Temple's 127th commencement ceremony today, May 15.
She will receive the title of Doctor of Humane Letters.
Staying true to her Philadelphia roots, Scott founded the Blues Babe Foundation, named after her grandmother, to help underserved students in the Delaware Valley achieve their postsecondary educational goals through financial assistance and mentorship. Nice work, Jill!
Congrats to J. Scott on that honorary doctorate.
