Tyra Banks can now add Harvard graduate to her growing list of career accomplishments!
The creator of America's Next Top Model recently graduated with a certificate from the Owner/President Management Program at Harvard Business School on Friday, and she couldn't wait to share the exciting news with her fans.
Banks Tweeted after graduating, "Smiling ear2ear on the Harvard Business School campus w/ my diploma! Tnx 2 my fab photographer mama 4 the pic!"
The first African American to ever grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, Banks was anxious to return to college, after dropping out of Loyola Marymount University to pursue modeling at the tender age of 17.
The Covergirl spokesmodel told CBS last year on her decision to go back to school, "In order for my company to grow and be the best, and to reach these women, and to serve them, I needed the best. So I went to the best."
Banks also shared a Twitpic of her big moment on stage!
Banks Tweeted after graduating, "A pic of me in the slideshow Harvard Business School showed @ my graduation! Don't be afraid 2 raise ur hand in class!"
