Trisha Yearwood will give the commencement address this Saturday at her alma mater, Young Harris College in Young Harris, GA. Trisha graduated from the school with an associate's degree in 1984. While at Young Harris, Trisha participated in several musical ensembles and served as president of the Sigma Beta Sigma sorority. She also made some relationships that continue to this day.
Trisha says, "My best friends today are girlfriends that I met at YHC. We try to see other once a year. I think that says something about the school."
Trisha went on to earn her bachelor's in business administration from Nashville's Belmont University before launching her music career.
