Chance the Rapper has been doing some amazing things for local communities and it is no suprise that Dillard University has recognized him.
Dillard selected Chance to deliver this year's commencement speech to the graduating class, also receiving a honorary Doctorate degree!
He said in the speech:
“Walk right up to the edge of what your heroes have accomplished and think to yourself, ‘What’s beyond this?' That is the moment you will become as great as your greatest inspiration. And that’s also when you cannot stop. Looking up to your heroes is amazing but it’s not good enough. The difference between goodness and greatness is going beyond. You have to push forward and surpass their greatness in order to pay homage to their struggle.”
