A very proud Ashley Judd attended her own commencement at Harvard University on May 27, 2010 and not only received a Harvard degree, but a diploma to prove it! Well done! Be sure to check out photos and videos below.

I didn’t even know the lovely Judd was even studying, but sure enough, she earned her Mid-Career Masters in Public Administration after a year of hard work. It is said that she attended the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Apparently she wasn’t the only Hollywood student, Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep, too, obtained an honorary degree but there are no reports saying watch she was studying. Both celebs were seen “wearing full robes and a graduation cap for the ceremony. Awesome job!

Another familiar name who majored in English, graduated with the class. From the Kennedy family, Rose Kennedy Schlossberg received her diploma with a degree in English. Her parents, along with their prominent family member, watched their loved one grace the stage.

The commencement exercises took place just days before the big Indianapolis 500 race where Ashley’s husband, Dario Franchitti, took the title. Reportedly, Judd’s hubby took the competition with an impressive run, this being his very first win in the Indianapolis 500 in 2010. He led the pack in 155 of 200 laps. Just three years ago he achieved first place with a win in 2007.

Congratulations to you both! You both are deserving, hard-working people with much to celebrate this Memorial Weekend! You may leave your congrats for Ashley Judd with obtaining her Harvard degree and for Dario Franchitti, who took first place in the Indianapolis 500 today in the comment box. Also, see pictures and a video clip of her husband’s win below.

    An honorary degree is granted to someone who is being honored by the university, if Meryl Streep got an honorary degree, that means she actually didn’t study anything at Harvard. (She wasn’t given an actual degree)
