Leonard Nimoy, a Boston native, has had a wide spanning career throughout Hollywood. The 81-year-old actor, director, & accomplished photographer can now add Doctor to his well versed resume. According to BU Today, Leonard will receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree this Sunday (May 20th). The day before he receives his degree, Leonard will also give the College of Fine Arts convocation address at Boston University where he will encourage graduating seniors to have "Persistence, Persistence, Persistence".
When asked if he had any "advice for students trying to break into the business?" Leonard answered; "I am going to say in my speech that I have three words of advice: persistence, persistence, persistence. Bring yourself to the work, bring us what you have, we need it, we crave it, we want and need what the arts offers us. And don’t create any more reality TV shows."
