Megan Thee Stallion is receiving her flowers after graduating from Texas Southern University on Saturday with a bachelor of science degree in health administration. Millions of Megan's fans congratulated the artist on social media, while many of her closest supporters also basked in the monumental achievement.
Megan showed off her glowing smile while posing for a photo with one of her biggest supporters — Texas Southern University's president, Dr. Lesia Crumpton-Young.
Journalist Jemele Hill was among those who highlighted Megan's ability to juggle a stellar academic chapter along with a world-renowned music career.

Last year, Megan said she was inspired to pursue her degree because of her mother, Holly Thomas, who died in March 2019 after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
"I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud," the artist told People.
The "WAP" rapper was also thinking about her grandmother, who died shortly after Thomas passed away.
"I want my big mama to be proud. She saw me going to school before she passed," Megan said. "My grandmother that's still alive used to be a teacher, so she's on my butt about finishing school. I'm doing it for me, but I'm also doing it for the women in my family who made me who I am today."
