Today, a new verse is written in the history books as REVOLT Chairman Sean Combs continues to break down barriers and glass ceilings by delivering the commencement speech at Howard University, a rare honor bestowed upon only the most imaginative and informative thinkers of our time.
Combs, a former Howard University student, has proven over the course of his illustrious career, in the music industry and beyond, that there is no formula for success - no amount of education or luck could help you achieve your dreams, but by remaining persistent and putting in the work, you can set yourself up to realize your goals.
Mature enough to look back on his journey with a steady mind and spirit, and young enough to appeal to those aspiring innovators in the crowd who will soon go on to change the world in their own ways, Mr. Combs is an ideal candidate for Howard's commencement speaker, and will no doubt infuse the ceremony with an inspiring, motivating address.
In addition to serving as the university's commencement speaker this year, Combs will also received an honorary doctorate degree, alongside fellow honorees Wolf Blitzer, Clive Callender, Indra Nooyi, and Benny Golson. Expected high-profile guests include Nas, Q-Tip, will.i.am, Ron Burkle, and plenty more.
Teaming with ABC and Howard U, REVOLT will be live-streaming the entire ceremony right here, so be sure to tune in at 9:30 a.m. EST / 6:30 a.m. PST. to watch history unfold on your very computer screen.
