Oprah will be in Saratoga Springs supporting a few students from her Leadership Academy, but everyone, including Oprah, will benefit from her visit.

Oprah Winfrey will be the Skidmore College graduation speaker for the Class of 2017 on May 20 in Saratoga Springs this year as one of her Leadership Academy students graduates. Oprah will also receive an Honorary Doctorate of Letters in the Arts.

The Skidmore College press release says it will recognize Oprah Winfrey's distinguished career in television and media and recognize her vision, leadership and commitment to education through the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls (OWLAG) in South Africa. In addition to accepting an honorary degree, Winfrey will address the class in support of one of her OWLAG graduates, who will receive a Skidmore degree.
