Andy's Angles: Diploma

I never framed it.  I never displayed it.  It doesn't mean I'm not proud of it.  I received it on the third Sunday of May, 35 years ago.

You may ask why I never pursued a higher degree, and there are times regret not doing that.

The reason is simple.  After 12 years of public school and another four of college, I wanted to get out and DO something.  I guess it was possible to have a job and get an advanced degree, but, for me, it was time to get to work.  On top of that, no local institution had what I wanted, and this was before you could do much of your advanced degree work on-line.
