The Topp Twins will be able to add one more thing to their list of achievements next month when they are both presented with an honorary doctorate.
The Waikato University would present Jools and Lynda Topp with honorary doctorates at a capping ceremony in October 20, University of Waikato vice-chancellor Roy Crawford said.
"We like the Topp Twins because they're not only entertainers, they have a social conscience," he said.
"They worked out a long time ago that people will usually listen to a song before a speech. And they have a charming ability to send people up without pulling them down."
