Grambling Mourns Death of Honorary Alumna Whitney Houston
Outlining her career accolades, university president Dr. Frank Pogue reflected on their shared ideals of education and excellence.
“Whitney Houston was the most naturally gifted singer I have ever heard. The fact that she was selected to receive an Honorary Doctorate, the most prestigious degree a university can confer, is a clear indication that Grambling has always recognized excellence. The fact that she willingly accepted the award confirms her respect for the academic quality for which Grambling is widely known. Her contributions in music will live forever.”
Houston is among the most awarded female artists in world history, having earned more than 415 accolades over her career.
