Congrats are in order as Mathew Knowles received an Honorary Doctorate Degree from Cornerstone Christian Bible College this past Father’s Day. He also delivered the Commencement Address on “The Ten Point Protocol for Success,” during the college’s graduation ceremony.
Mathew Knowles received high remarks from Dr. Oscar J. Dowdell-Underwood, Apostle and President of Cornerstone Christian Bible College; “Dr. Knowles’ immeasurable contributions in the fields of culture, public service and the fine arts have impacted numerous lives in exponential ways. He has empowered so many through his extraordinary commitment to the development of human potential, gifts, and talents. Millions of people around the world have been positively impacted by his unselfish deposit in the lives of others.”
Mathew Knowles wasn’t alone as about 30 members of his family were there in support as the honorary doctorate was conferred upon him. Knowles was also awarded the 21st Century Legend Award alongside, Dr. A.C. Green, formerly of the Los Angeles Lakers. During his commencement remarks, Dr. A.C. Green, who was deeply moved by Knowles’ speech, referred to Dr. Knowles as one of his new heroes.
“June 17, 2012 was a very special day for me and one that I will never forget,” said Knowles. “Not only did I receive my second Honorary Doctorate Degree, but I had the rare opportunity to see several members of my family—many that I have not seen since my childhood in Alabama, and some I just met for the first time. I am profoundly grateful for the honor, the love and support of my family. And it was especially humbling to meet and spend time with this year’s graduates.”
Congrats to Mathew…err, Dr. Mathew Knowles!!
