According to Yahoo News country icon, Merle Haggard, received an honorary doctorate Friday June 14th from California University, Bakersfield.

The honor was given at the commencement ceremony for the School of Arts and Humanities that also celebrated the late Buck Owens. The university does not bestow honorary doctorates posthumously, so Buck Owens was instead awarded the President’s Medal.

Congrats to “The Hag” on this great honor!
