You are Never Too Old to Learn

Dan Weedin Mindy Weedin and Don Weedin, Class of 2007

A colleague of mine on the West Coast, Dan Weedin, shared this photo with me of his daughter, who graduated high school in 2007 and his dad, who graduated H.S. the same year. I guess you could say that Don took the long way to graduation, as the date should have been 1943. However, Don quit high school to join the fight in WW2 so he was only able to get a GED. This was his chance to get that high school dimploma. The point is that Don achieved his goal. No ifs, ands or buts.

I’m posting this photo with the hope that Don will inspire those of you, who never got around to finishing either your high school degree or your college degree to take action. This economy is the perfect time to do so.

For those of you who have always dreamed of finishing college, there is no time like the present. If you no longer have an income, you may now qualify for financial aid. Fewer students will be accepting admission offers due to lack of finances, and you certainly won’t be giving up the dream of making all those big bucks on Wall Street, since those dreams are on hold.

So what are you waiting for?
