Racquel Smith Accepts Will Smith’s Posthumous Graduate Degree

Will Smith‘s widow, Raquel Smith, accepted his posthumous graduate degree from the University of Miami during their commencement ceremony on Thursday (May 5).

Racquel, who is still in a wheelchair due to her injuries, became overwhelmed with emotion as she accepted her late husband’s degree.



Smith, a former New Orleans Saints star, was gunned down by Cardell Hayes on April 9 during an apparent road rage incident. Racquel was also injured when Hayes shot her in the leg.

Hayes has been charged with second-degree murder and attempted second degree murder.

My heart and prayers go out to Racquel and her children.
