ICYMI: Football-player-turned-professional wrestler-turned-actor #DwayneJohnson (@therock) received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Wednesday, one week before the release of his latest film, "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle."
Congratulations are also in order to U.S. Open Champion #SloaneStephens, who just graduated from college today!
This morning, the 24-year-old graduated from Indiana East University with a Bachelors of Arts in Communication Studies. The university has a partnership with the Women's Tennis Association, which provides its members with baccalaureate online degree completion programs. Tennis great, Venus Williams completed the same program in 2015 when she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.
For Sloane, the academic achievement comes only a few months after her incredible comeback where she won her first Grand Slam title and moved up over 900 spots to world No. 17 (she is now world No. 13). Sloane took to social media to share a graduation photo along with a caption that read: "Indiana University East Class of 2017. Made my grandparents proud this morning!" We're proud of you too, Sloane! Congratulations! [via @becauseofthem]
This is Patricia Gaines, whose father, a liberal minister, was driven out of Selma in 1961 by Klansmen on horseback. She went back to Selma for the first time yesterday to drive black voters to the polls. #Resist
