Wichita superintendent thanks her dad on Father's Day

Allen Morris dropped out of school in the 11th grade. He worked at junkyards, packing companies, foundries, gas stations, hospitals -- “Anything to keep from stealing,” as he put it later.

His daughter, Alicia Thompson, says she got a doctorate because of her dad. (June 16, 2017) (Video by Bo Rader / The Wichita Eagle)
