Nordegren to receive degree from Florida college


Elin Nordegren, the ex-wife of world No. 1 Tiger Woods, will be one of 269 students to graduate Saturday from Rollins College in Orlando, Fla.

Nordegren will receive a bachelor's degree in psychology after completing her studies with a 3.96 GPA. According to an Orlando Sentinel report, the 34-year-old was chosen by a group of faculty members as "Outstanding Senior," an honor akin to valedictorian that afforded Nordegren the opportunity to make a speech at the commencement ceremony.

"I am very honored because this achievement reflects how inspired I was by the curriculum and the instructors," she told the Sentinel. "I want to continue to study and learn, but I am not exactly sure how yet. My passion has always been psychology, but my interests continue to broaden."

Nordegren and Woods were married from 2004-2010, and the pair have two children together. According to the report, Nordegren has been attending classes at Rollins on a part-time basis since 2005.
