A STORY WORTH READING.
IT IS NEVER TOO LATE..
Always first in his class, Jeudy Jean Orel, assiduously follows classes with children who could have been his great grandsons. Despite the disagreement of his family members, he worked hard and was able to take the Certificate of Studies exams at age 76.
"I went back to school, because I want to leave a story for the country, like Toussaint Louverture, who learned to read and write very late, but who has left an indelible mark in history, "said proudly. The native of Boucan Carré, in the locality of La Chaussée.
Born in 1942 and the father of seven children, Jeudy Jean Orel is a man full of activities who has already proven his skills and abilities in many fields and has distinguished himself in community development since the Duvalier years with Madame Max Adolphe.
I worked as a cattle identification technician in the Central Plateau with the Ministry of Agriculture. I came up with the idea of the Boucan Carré - Mirebalais road, I personally traced it and I started the work with traditional tools like hoes and spades. Later, I had the help of Father Laurent and Father Sicot, "revealed Jean Orel.
This week, Jeudy Jean Orel, dressed in his uniform as his 19 other little comrades participate in the exams of state of the 9th fundamental year.
This veterinary technician, who learned everything on the job, became a role model and inspired many adults in his community who decided to return to school to progress intellectually and professionally.
