Congratulations to Dyslexia Scotland's President, Sir Jackie Stewart,on receiving an honorary degree from Edinburgh Napier University
The ‘Flying Scot’, who racked up twenty-seven Grand Prix victories and three Formula 1 World Championships during his career, joined hundreds of students to collect an Honorary Doctorate of the University at a ceremony held at Edinburgh's Usher Hall on Thursday 24th October.
Well known as a pioneer for motor-racing safety, Sir Jackie is also a driving force in the campaign to raise awareness of dyslexia - although he wasn’t properly identified as being dyslexic until in his forties.
Speaking ahead of the ceremony, Sir Jackie said: “I am very proud to have been selected for an honorary degree at Edinburgh Napier University. It is always nice to be recognised particularly in your own country.”
