Dr Oprah Winfrey

Yes, that’s right: Dr Oprah (again). This time she gets a Honorary Doctorate in Education, courtesy of a local University here in South Africa:

A South African university is set to award talk show queen Oprah Winfrey with an honorary doctorate, reports East Coast Radio Newswatch.

The University of the Free State will hand over the accolade in an upcoming ceremony which is open to the public. The university says it wants to recognise and honour Winfrey’s accomplishments as a global media leader – as well as her contribution in the field of education and development. Winfrey already holds honorary doctorates from Princeton University as well as Duke University in the US, among others.
