Ghanaian award winning actor Van Vicker graduates with first class in strategic communication. He also emerged as best student in Strategic Communication and Best Communications student of AUCC, 21 years after completing Senior High school.
The actor was one of the graduating students at AUCC’s 17th graduation ceremony held on Saturday, July 24, 2021. Van Vicker graduated with first-class honours.
According to Van Vicker, it took him 21 years to achieve his degree after completing high school in 1997; because his mother didn’t have enough funds to push him into the tertiary level.
He posted on Instagram “21years later, here I stand before you with 3 achievements during my graduation; to God be the Glory. 1. 1st class honours 2. Best Student in Strategic Communication 3. Best Communication Student Award,” he said in an Instagram post”.
He continued: “The above is within the context of my 2021 post on social media and is in no way presumptuous but uprightly to inspire – I could not enrol at a tertiary institution in 1997 because my single mother did not have the funds. If free SHS was available back in the day, most likely I would have graduated in 2000/2001.”
“My career took off and I have been blessed but as someone who relishes education getting that degree was just a matter of time.”
Van Vicker revealed that he will complete his Master’s Degree in December this year and is even committed to going beyond his Master’s.
“I complete my Master’s program this December and I am sorely motivated and committed to going even beyond, God willing. I thank all those who supported me and is supporting me during this journey,” he concluded.
