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 be among five people who will receive honorary degrees as trailblazers in their fields.
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.
The university also will honor CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, transplant surgeon Clive Callender, jazz legend Benny Golson and PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi.
