Toby Keith’s Daughter Accepts His Posthumous Honorary Degree From University Of Oklahoma

Toby Keith‘s daughter Krystal Keith accepted a honorary degree bestowed on her late father by the University of Oklahoma over the weekend.

The degree was presented by the university during the school’s graduation ceremony on Saturday (May 11).

Keith, who was ailing from stomach cancer since 2021, passed away in February this year.

“Toby learned he would be receiving an honorary degree from @uofoklahoma last fall,” a post shared to Keith’s official Instagram account on Sunday read. “And yesterday, @krystalkeith accepted it on his behalf at the commencement ceremony. Congratulations to all of the OU graduates!”

“So incredibly grateful to Tricia and Krystal Keith for joining us Saturday to celebrate the impact and legacy of @tobykeith with an honorary degree from @UofOklahoma. Miss you and each and every day, TK,” University of Oklahoma President Joseph Harroz Jr. wrote on X.

Harroz also shared a photo, which featured Krystal and Toby’s wife, Tricia Lucus.

All three of Keith’s children attended the university, and the musician maintained a close rapport with Harroz Jr. In February, following news of Keith’s death, the university president shared a moving tribute highlighting his contributions to the community.
