National TV show host and Mercer University alumna Nancy Grace returns to Macon this weekend for homecoming.
She'll receive the Distinguished Alumna Award during Mercer's homecoming basketball game Saturday, says Mercer spokesman Mark Vanderhoek.
Grace graduated from the College of Liberal Arts in 1981 and Mercer Law School in 1984.
According toThe Mercerian, Mercer's alumni publication, the award goes to someone who "has served their profession in an outstanding manner, and in so doing, has brought honor to his/her person and the University. This award is presented to humanity and dedication which have fostered the ideals of Mercer University."
Alongside Grace, two other Mercer alumni will receive two different awards. Thomas B. Black of Columbus receives the Meritorius Service Award and Historic Macon's Josh Rogers will receive the Thomas Sewell Plunkett Young Alumnus Award.
The game tips off at 4 p.m.
