In a story of triumph over adversity, blind senator, Floyd Morris, who left St Mary High School 31 years ago without having a single subject in an external exam, is celebrating the successful defence of his thesis for a doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree.
With the passing of the oral examination yesterday, the former senate president is now closer to being awarded the degree from the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies.
Sharing pictures wife his wife, Shelley-Ann, the advocate for the disabled community, took to Facebook last night to share his journey from his struggles in St Mary to one of the highest academic honours.
See edited excerpts of his Facebook post below:
When Jesus says yes, no one can say no! 31 years ago, I left one of the best high schools in the island, St Mary High School. When I left that institution, I did so without a single subject because my sight had deteriorated significantly and I was unable to complete my CXC exams.
