HOUSTON – The Houston hottie herself came back home this week to surprise recipients of the Flamin’ Hot scholarship fund at her alma mater, Texas Southern University.
At the campus’ weekly Hump Day pep rally, Megan Thee Stallion was joined by the Ocean of Soul band to celebrate the recipients and participate in a fireside chat with TSU’s Tracy Clemons.
KPRC 2′s Moriah Ballard was live on campus to catch some pretty special moments with Meg and the students.

The Flamin’ Hot scholarship fund was established earlier this year to help graduating seniors at TSU and is now rewarding over $150,000 to more than 20 graduating seniors.
According to Associate Vice President of Marketing and Communications, Tracy Clemons, it was difficult to pull off the surprise after students on campus began chatting about who might come.
“We have been planning for her to be here as part of this partnership for quite some time. And, she’s a busy lady. And she’s performing all over the world. So, we were just excited that our alum made some time out of her schedule to come home and do this amazing thing for our students! And the students were very, very grateful.”

Part of this funding comes from the proceeds of the exclusive Flamin’ Hot University merch line created by fashion designer Melody Ehsani with input from Megan.
The Grammy Award-winning rapper, whose full name is Megan Pete, graduated from TSU in 2021, earning her Bachelor’s degree in Health Administration from the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. In addition, the university announced that a scholarship fund was set up in the rapper’s name.
