HGTV star Egypt Sherrod has a lot to celebrate. Not only did Sherrod get to enjoy Mother’s Day on May 12, 2024, but one day earlier the “Married to Real Estate” star traveled to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where she was presented with an honorary doctorate degree.

“So today I did a thing…… I got a PhD!! Stillman College presented me with an Honorary Doctorate. Now shall I go by Dr. Egypt Sherrod or Egypt Sherrod PhD?? Prepare to be sick of me!!! 🤣🤣🤣 For the record, I recognize there are those who study years for this. But I am honored the trustees, board and students deemed my life’s work, and mastery of my areas worthy of a PhD. 🙏🏽,” Sherrod wrote in the caption of her May 11 Instagram post.

Prior to her doctorate, Sherrod earned a Bachelor of Arts in Radio and Television from Temple University in 1996, with additional studies at New York University.

In addition to accepting her degree at Stillman’s commencement, Sherrod gave the keynote speech at the ceremony. “I want to tell you that it does not matter how you got here, it’s that you’re here,” Sherrod told the graduates during her uplifting remarks, “and your time is now.”
