Spelman College students will have the chance to hear words of wisdom from commencement speaker Oprah Winfrey on Sunday.

Winfrey is a Mississippi native who received an honorary degree from Spelman College in 1993.

She will also be recognized with the National Community Service Award.

"We are thrilled to welcome Oprah Winfrey back to our campus to receive this well-deserved award. I know her address to the Class of 2012 will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on the graduates, as it did in 1993," said Beverly Daniel Tatum, Ph.D., president.

The ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park.
