Thank you to @iscomuniversitybn for honoring me today with Doctorate of Philosophy in Business Administration (Honoris Causa) for my work in sports, education, and service. Still pretty unreal. This is something I always wanted especially because I know I couldn’t sit in a classroom again to get the PhD � I recently told @munap_29 that my uncle wouldn’t be the only Dr. M Lecky…look at me now!’
