Meet our Honorary Graduand - Christine Gore
The Chancellor and Board of Directors of The Mico University College are pleased to announce that Mrs Christine Gore, Attorney-at-law, philanthropist and leader in Early Childhood Education, will be its Honorary Graduand this year.
Mrs Gore will receive an EdD in Leadership (honoris causa) in recognition of her outstanding contribution to Educational Leadership in Early Childhood Education and to philanthropy in the wider Education sector.
A graduate of the Norman Manley Law School and the University of Sydney, Australia where she earned a Masters in International Trade and Finance Law; she then translated those skills into public service. Along with her husband, The Phillip and Christine Gore Foundation was founded where she implemented and led programmes in 12 basic schools ensuring that “no child is lost to the system”. Her passion for education is unquestionable as she continues to engage with various educational entities to ensure their success.
