In Essence a tapped Spice Island Flack capped with doctorate
The St. Andrews-born, Spice Island national gushed with gratitude as members of her family, friends and graduates witnessed a ceremony officiated by Eugene J. Cornnacchia, president of the New Jersey Jesuit institution
Caribbeanlifenews.com: Tapped in the late 1990s by Columbia Records to direct a publicity campaign aimed at marketing Black talent in the music industry, a young Grenadian native transitioned from a path in journalism to factor in steering the music trajectory of newcomer Mariah Carey, Beyonce and others and was recently capped for an honorary doctorate.
Now and going forward to be referred to as Dr. Yvette Noel Schure she was robed, conferred and lauded by St. Peter’s University at their 128th commencement with an honorary doctorate of Humane letters honoris causa.
The St. Andrews-born, Spice Island national gushed with gratitude as members of her family, friends and graduates witnessed a ceremony officiated by Eugene J. Cornnacchia, president of the New Jersey Jesuit institution.
She presented the inspirational commencement address and was herself conferred an honoree.
Pride prevailed throughout the crowd comprised of an audience that probably recognized the celebrity honoree from reports of her role as Beyonce’s publicist and special assistant.
Most recently the publicist allegedly rushed in defense of her client who supposedly gave a “side eye” signal in retaliation to an overly friendly admirer of Beyonce’ husband Jay Z.
Faster than a Donald Trump clap-back tweet about fake news, Noel-Schure cleared the air asking for tolerance and positivity.
Her no-nonsense assault on negativity has earned her respect from reporters who work the entertainment beat and even gossip trolls who claim credibility fueling flames of malcontent.

The lifestyle pub focused their lens on the national who in her quest for ink as a publicist pitched the creativity of Will Smith, Kenny Lattimore, Diana King, Tony Rebel, Supercat, Destinys Child, John Legend, The Fugees, Susan Boyle and a long list of recorders signed to the premiere, pop music record label.
