How Refreshing …. Celebrities with an Education!

May 23rd, 2013 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized

It’s graduation season-a time when twenty-somethings are going out into the world to work at their chosen profession.  However, it is very rare to see a graduate who is older and also successful in another chosen profession.
When I woke this morning, I read an article about one such student.  Eva Longoria, of Desperate Housewives fame, just received a Master’s Degree in Chicano and Chicana Studies from Cal State University at Northridge.  It took her three years and she studied while on the set of “Desperate Housewives.”
How refreshing!  She did not rest on her laurels as a TV star.  Longoria completed her degree the old fashion way.  She worked for it!  Congrats!
In this day and age of “honorary degrees” for celebrities, these celebrities did the work and have actual degrees:
Basketball star Shaquille O’Neal
Doctorate in Education from Barry University
TV star Mayim Bialik
Ph.D in Neuroscience from UCLA
Dr. Ken Jeong, from The Hangover movies
Medical Degree
Musician Brian May
Doctorate in Astrophysics from Imperial College
