#Outlander Star, Sam Heughan to Receive Honorary Doctorate

The University of Glasgow in recognition of Sam Heughan’s artistic success and charitable work will be awarding the Outlander star with an honorary doctorate degree.

Sam is well known for his role as Jamie Fraser on the Starz hit show Outlander but that isn’t all Sam does. He started My Peak Challenge which has raised over $2 million for Bloodwise since its inception in 2015.

Sam was very humbled & cheeky at the news of his honorary degree. That’s Sam for ya 😂

Professor Carol Hill of UofG said: “This campus has grown in influence and impact since it was opened 20 years ago in September 1999 to serve the higher education needs of Dumfries and Galloway.

“In this our 20th anniversary year of celebrations, we at Dumfries are delighted to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our honorary graduates, representing a range of talents, careers and charitable interests.”

Congratulations Sam!!! Well deserved!!!
