NORMAL, Ill. (AP) - Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress Jane Lynch has received an honorary doctoral degree from her alma mater Illinois State University.

Lynch is a native of the Chicago suburb of Dolton and a 1982 graduate of Illinois State’s theatre program. The (Bloomington) Pantagraph (https://bit.ly/2lSUAdx ) reports Lynch told an audience Thursday at the Normal campus that she’s thankful for “all the mishaps” and “detours” in life that led her to where she is today.

Lynch is known for her portrayal of cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on the TV show “Glee.” She’s also hosted “Hollywood Game Night” and appeared on shows like “Criminal Minds” and “Two and a Half Men.”

Lynch says her “passion began to blossom” for acting at ISU. Last September she appeared in a television spot promoting the school.
