Megan Thee Stallion Graduates From TSU and Receives Humanitarian Award

In Summary

For more than a summer, the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper has been stacking up the accolades with a Grammy, a graduation and commendation. The Houston native is thankful for the city that raised her. 

Houston’s own Megan Pete, also known as Megan Thee Stallion, received the 18th Congressional District Humanitarian Award and earned her college diploma over the weekend. 

The new Texas Southern University graduate made her way across the stage Saturday afternoon in her hometown of Houston. The HBCU graduate earned her bachelor’s degree in health administration and pledges to open an assisted-living facility, from a promise to her grandmother.

According to People magazine, the Grammy Award-winning rapper plans to open this facility and staff it with her classmates. 

“Nobody ever wants to hire you fresh out of college. They feel like you have no experience, so I want to create a place where you can get experience,” she said.

The “Hot Girl” rapper kept the awards coming as she was awarded the 18th Congressional District Humanitarian Award at a ceremony with Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee for her efforts in her community.  

“This award has not been given out often, or to many,” Lee said at the conference. “That is why it remains a special part in our congressional district. The district has almost one million people. When this award is given, it has that special promise and special history.”
