    That is great news. Congratulations Michelle. She will not only be known as the Kween but also as
    Dr. Kwan.

    No, Michelle is not entitled to use the word "Doctor." The degree is honorary and people who are given honorary doctorates do not use the title of "Doctor." That would be incorrect and very bad form. Michelle would never do that. Someday I can see her earning the real thing (Doctorate). Congratulations to her for the honorary one in the meantime.

    This is actually a pretty cool little school. It is housed in the mansions of the one-time billionaire industrialist who founded Owens-Corning Glass.
