In 1993, she received an honorary degree from Spelman College and this year she will receive Spelman’s National Community Service Award.

We are thrilled to welcome Oprah Winfrey back to our campus to receive this well-deserved award. I know her address to the Class of 2012 will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on the graduates, as it did in 1993.”
