College

Just found out my 15 year old son got accepted in the dual enrollement plan at his high school. So he will be a high schooler and a college student come this fall. As for me I attended my last class this evening and will graduate with my Bachelors degree next weekend. It was a long road and I am glad my son saw me take the journey and is following in my footsteps.

Great job Gary. Im thinking about going back to school myself. The dual enrollment plan will be great for your son. A good friend of mine did it back when I was in high school and loved it.

Kudos Gary.

Obtaining a degree while working and supporting the family is one mean feat.

And your son's "Dual Enrolment" is both an interesting and rather successful program.

Congrads' again to you both.

I didn't even know about dual enrollment . . . Now I do, after my boys have both graduated from college.

Congratulations, Gary.

Not sure how you pulled it off, what a feat...working as a tileman And doing night school.
