Geri Horner full of gratitude as she's joined by husband Christian to get honorary degree


Geri Horner received an honorary doctorate award from Sheffield Hallam University on Tuesday in recognition of her commitment to raising the aspirations of children and young people, advocating for women’s rights and an outstanding contribution to the music industry over the last 25 years.  

The Spice Girl collected her award along with more than 8,000 graduates. On receiving her doctorate, Geri said: “I sincerely believe education is a superpower – we are learning machines and I am still learning.  

“I was studying A-level English literature before I embarked on a different kind of adventure, so I didn’t go to university – but I always valued my education and my love of reading, storytelling and words. 

“Education is power. It gives confidence and opens eyes, hearts and minds.”  

Geri also shared her exciting achievement with her Instagram followers, telling them it is an “honour” to “celebrate education and to join a community that empowers women and young people across the globe”.
