Columbia Janitor Graduates With Honors [VIDEO]
An Ivy League student gets his degree and goes back to work as a janitor at the school.
FOX News Radio‘s Chris Foster reports from New York:
Twenty years ago Gac Filipaj was close to finishing law school in Yugoslavia, but he left for America to get away from civil war.
He learned English, got a job as a janitor at Columbia University in New York, taking classes for free.
(Filipaj) “When I studied during the night, sometimes got even two hours sleep. Sometimes when I have to write papers, no sleep at all.”
He has now graduated with honors in Classics, chipping away at that degree for 12 years. He’s right back to cleaning at Columbia, looking for a better job, and graduate school. Still, sending money home to his family.
In New York, Chris Foster, FOX News Radio.
