Tom Petty will be honored by his hometown university. He'll receive a posthumous doctoral degree in music from the University of Florida in Gainesville, where he was born and raised. While Petty never went to the school, he did work there as a groundskeeper, and has been remembered at every football game there since his death four years ago! (Photo by Alberto E.
