Jill Scott was unable to finish college at Temple University many years ago for financial reasons. Luckily for Jill, her career has provided her an opportunity to receive an honorary doctorate from Temple (5/14)!

The university's President, Neil D. Theobald told Essence that Jill gets this honor because of what she represents.

“[Her] values and achievements embody the mission and ideas of the university.”
