Editor’s note: Hank Aaron will receive an honorary Doctor of Business degree from Grambling State University during its spring commencement ceremonies on Friday. A fundraising reception for the Eddie G. Robinson Museum will honor Aaron and four other former Atlanta Braves with local ties afterwards at the Squire Creek Country Club at 2 p.m. that afternoon.
