Shaquille O'neal Will Add "Dr." To His Name

Shaq has been a star athlete, a rapper, an actor, a police officer and pretty soon hell be adding "Dr." to his list of accomplishments. According to the Miami New Times the man of steel will be graduating from Miami's Barry University this Saturday with a doctorate degree in Leadership in Education with a specialization in Human Resource Development. "He's a very impressive guy, very inquisitive, and it's a pleasure to have him as a student. I think the degree will serve as an example for others, and he should be very proud of himself" says department's chair, Dr. David M. Kopp. It's great to see Shaq was able to go back to school and further his education no matter what age or how busy he is. Kudos big guy!

Very impressed by this.  Love the fact that it's not an "honorary" degree, but one that he worked for.  I would LOVE to talk to him about what he did his dissertation on, cause those things are no joke.
