Nancy Grace is set to earn the Distinguished Alumna Award from Mercer University on Saturday.

Grace, who received her undergraduate and law degrees from the university, has gone on to become a legal commentator and host of her own show on CNN.

The award is given to people who served their profession in an outstanding manner that brings honor to them and the university. Mercer wrote in its alumni magazine that the “award is presented for service to humanity and dedication, which have fostered the ideals of Mercer University.”

Grace’s award is slated to be presented at halftime during Saturday’s men’s basketball game, which begins at 4 p.m.

Separately, Josh Rogers, executive director of the Historic Macon Foundation, is slated to receive the Thomas Sewell Plunkett Young Alumnus Award. Thomas B. Black of Columbus is slated to receive the Meritorious Service Award.
