Drake Graduates From High School
Congratulations are in order. Drake has officially graduated from high school and received his hard-earned diploma.
"97% on my final exam. 88% in the course," the 25-year-old rapper tweeted on Tuesday (Oct. 17). "One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!"
The Canadian superstar hit the books this year with the hopes of completing his courses by summer's end. It took him a little bit longer, but he finally accomplished his longtime goal. He even took the time to thank those who helped him along the way.
"Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND," Drake added.
Drizzy pursued acting during his teen years, landing a role on the TV series 'Degrassi: The Next Generation.' Later, the hip-hop star released his first mixtape and debut album, 'Thank Me Later,' the success of which attributed to his decision to delay his studies.
Drake's accomplishment sends a strong positive message to his fans. Though he may not have walked in a crowded auditorium dressed in a cap and gown, he has made his education a priority, and for that he should be commended. Way to go, Drake!
