Dominican graduates with Master’s degree with perfect 4.0 GPA

Sharplis says she’s passionate about teaching and plans to continue in that direction

Gail Sharplis of Vieille Case has graduated with a Master’s degree in Adult and Higher Education with a perfect 4.0 GPA from the University of Oklahoma, a public research university located in Norman, Oklahoma.

The ceremony took place earlier this month.

Sharplis is the only Dominican who has been attending the University of Oklahoma for the past year.

In May 2013, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Grambling State University with a 4.0 GPA as well.

Sharplis taught at the Dominica State College for three years prior to leaving to pursue her graduate degree.

She says she’s passionate about teaching and will continue to steer in that direction in the foreseeable future.

    Congrats, but again, another Dominica that will not (and really cannot) come back home to work. So it doesn’t benefit us.

    CONGRATS TO YOU. It is so wonderful to see people succeed but it is even more blissful when Dominicans succeed. Dominica’s quiver is full of sharp arrow intellectuals that can get right to the heart of problems. we have a wide cadre of the best the world over. we have the resources to become a great nation in the Information age.

    But what are we all collectively as a nation doing to harness such talent, whether they are in Dominica, the region or globally?

    Meanwhile, Congrats to you – keep this flame and take your candle, light up the world

    Congrats on earning your MEd summa cum laude. My unsolicited advice is to earn a doctorate before returning to Dominica. My best wishes for your continuing success.

    Congrats to you Ms. Gail Sharplis for making us proud! You are the real person from VielleCase, like the Pm and a Sharplis, which means you are a family member of the PM’S favorite priest and that should put you in a position of success with any other prime minister! But alas not so with Skerrit because I know he must have told you don’t go back to Dominica because Da has nothing for you, or if you choose to come back you will have to see if you can get a penny job at the call center. Such is the kind of government we now have in Dominica.
