Latina Actress Receives Master's Degree in Chicano Studies, Praised by Former President


Obtaining a college degree is highly applauded achievement, and especially later in life when work can be demanding, but one Latina in particular made it happen and  has been recognized by a former president for doing just that.
Former Desperate Housewives starlet Eva Longoria, 38,recently received her Master’s Degree in Chicano studies and recognition from Bill Clinton, Fox News Latino reported. 
The California State University – Northridge graduate was congratulated via twitter by Clinton for “inspiring others to never stop learning. . .”
Longoria not only attended classes, but her composed thesis statement was culturally rooted, titled, “Success STEMS from Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Careers.”
As Clinton extended his congratulatory message, and the Latino Rights Organization, MALDEF, reveled in her success, Longoria was spotted dining out with her parents to commemorate her recent accomplishment.
Longoria took to her site “Who Says” to share both photos of her day and the big news.
“Very excited to graduate with my Master’s Degree in Chicano studies,” beamed the actress on Wednesday. She also offered evergreen advice for the Latino community: “You’re never too old or too busy to continue your education.”
The report revealed that Longoria’s workload is still hefty as she is set to assume her new role as executive producer for the upcoming Lifetime series, “Devious Maids”, which premiers this June.
