YOU CAN CALL HIM DR. RAPINO
Live Nation CEO Receives Honorary Doctorate From
Canadian Alma Mater

Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino has received an honorary doctorate of commerce from his alma mater, Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Rapino addressed the graduating classes from his former program as well as the Faculty of Education during Saturday morning's convocation ceremony.

“I got lucky,” he said. “I found my passion early. That was kind of my north star. I didn’t stop pursuing my dream of doing it bigger and on a grander scale and it took me from Thunder Bay to Toronto to New York to Los Angeles.”

“If you can start with the ending goal of some passion and figuring out what it is you want to do in life off that foundation of your education then nothing is going to stop you.”

Along with a certificate, Rapino received a gold-plated bottle of maple syrup with the words "World's Biggest Hoser" etched across it. Job well done, eh?
