Usually celebrities and sports stars receive honorary degrees for making an appearance at graduation or maybe even speaking at a ceremony.
This is not the case for tennis star Venus Williams.
The 11th best female tennis player in the world earned a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration from Indiana University on August 14.
The Compton native has dominated the tennis circuit along with the world’s best female tennis player, her sister Serena Williams.
However, earning a degree was an accomplishment Venus set for herself and as anyone who has earned their Bachelors of Arts or Science can attest to, it’s a journey.
After winning numerous grand slam single and double tournaments, this degree is her latest addition to the trophy room.
So congrats to you Venus, you did that.
