Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Commencement Reception at the Newseum

The Newseum’s 8th floor rooftop was the perfect setting for a gala reception honoring Sean Combs, aka “P.Diddy” or “Puff Daddy.” He was awarded an honorary doctorate and was the commencement speaker for Howard University’s Class of 2014. Combs attended the school’s business program in 1990, but never finished. He told the graduating class that he’d never forgotten his Howard family and all he learned, demonstrating that people can take different paths in life and still be a success!

The clear 30’ x 90’ structure tent and connecting canopies—offered a direct view up Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol! Festivities were planned by LaToya Lewis of Events by Andre Wells; Wolfgang Puck at the Newseum provided the catering. Congratulations Dr. Combs!
