It seems like just yesterday Eminem was telling his daughter (via the song Mockingbird), “Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird.” Now, instead of toys, Marshall Mathers is going to have to buy her a whole lot more when she heads to college!
Earlier this month, Hailie Scott graduated from Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, Mich., and paid tribute to her parents, Em and Kim, on the Highest Honors newsletter.
Crediting them as the "most influential" people in her life, she wrote, “My mother and father are because they have pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have."
Hailie, who listed her parents as “Marshall and Kimberly Mathers,” achieved the prestigious Summa Cum Laude status (3.9 or above Grade Point Average). The 18-year-old student has also been recognized with the Academic Excellence Award and Department of Psychology Award.
Activities she participated in throughout her high school journey included the National Honor Society, Art Club, Key Club, volleyball, and Student Council.

We're sure her papa must be very proud of her since he was a former high school dropout after failing ninth grade—three times! Now look at him.
This fall, Hailie will continue her education at Michigan State University with hopes of pursing a degree in “psychology or entrepreneurship.”

As it is unknown whether or not Eminem attended her graduation, he did visit the school in October when she was crowned homecoming queen. A parent at the time said Eminem attended but watched "from inside the school because he didn’t want to cause a scene.”
