Props to Hailie Jade Scott, the daughter of Eminem and ex-wife Kimberly Mathers, who graduated Summa Cum Laude from Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, Michigan this month. To achieve Summa Cum Laude, the school requires students maintain a 3.9 grade point or higher. According to the school’s newsletter, she also received an Academic Excellence Award and a Department of Psychology Award.
In the newsletter, the 18-year-old who inspired “Hailie’s Song” credits her parents as most the influential people in her life. “My mother and father are because they pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have,” she wrote. Even after the intense subject matter that her dad has addressed in his raps, it’s incredible that she still has strong relationships with both her parents.
ABC included a photo posted on Instagram of Hailie at her graduation a few weeks ago on June 11.
Haile may not be following her father’s rapping trajectory in the musical sense, but she certainly has his drive. Her listed extracurriculars included National Honor Society, Art Club, Key Club, volleyball and Student Council.
This fall, she’s headed to Michigan State University, where she plans to pursue either psychology or entrepreneurship.
