HAMMOND, La. (AP) -- Southeastern Louisiana University will honor ABC's "Good Morning America" co-host Robin Roberts with an honorary doctorate at its spring commencement on May 17.
 
   The school's governing body, the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors, approved awarding Roberts with the degree last year. The ceremony is set for 10 a.m. at the University Center, where about 1,200 students will receive bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees.
 
   Roberts is a 1983 communications graduate and former basketball star at Southeastern. After graduating, she entered the broadcasting field and eventually joined ESPN, hosting "SportsCenter" and contributing regularly to "NFL Primetime." She joined "Good Morning America" in 2005.
