Mother Had Son At 13, Both Received Doctorate Degrees In August

Maurice McBride and his mother, Vickie McBride



From EurWeb 

Wow. Now, here’s an interesting and somewhat mind-boggling story.

A Georgia mom, Vickie McBride, and her son, Maurice McBride, both recently received their PHDs on the SAME day.

What’s also interesting and quite frankly mind boggling, is that Vickie gave birth to Maurice when she was only 13-years-old!

“Never in a thousand, million, trillion years [did I expect to get my PhD]. The thought of becoming a doctor anyone was far-fetched,” said Dr. Maurice McBride.

Getting his diploma was important, but sharing the stage with his mother is one of the highlights of his life

“I never thought I would get chance to see my mother walk across the stage and then she turned around and saw me walk across the stage,” he said.

Considering the history of the McBrides, their accomplishment is something to be celebrated.
