Pitbull received an honorary degree from Doral Academy & College yesterday. He joined the stage with hundreds of high school grads and college grads who were also sharing the ceremony.
“I have something that I live by, which is, take it from a negative to a positive,” said Pitbull, as he addressed the graduates.
After receiving the huge honor Pitbull shared with the students what he has learned. “Guys in this day and age, people take so many pictures that they miss the big picture, life,” he said.
For most of the graduates the superstar’s appearance was a huge surprise. “It was a shock to all of us. I wish I could have gotten a selfie with him,” said graduate Gloria Gennaro.
While there were no selfies, there were plenty of rumors before the ceremony. A few students like Marisa Ramunas, knew Pitbull was coming. Ramunas, who is in student government, got a sneak peak of the program. “But, I didn’t tell anyone. I didn’t tell anyone,” said Ramunas. “I promise I didn’t tell anyone.”
“It’s Mr. 305, better yet Mr. Worldwide, checking in, checking out. God bless, goodnight. Thank you guys for having me,” said Pitbull as he ended his speech.
Salutes to Pit for the honorary degree and for continuing to make time for local schools and events like this.
