College Picks The Wrong Guy!

It is definitely an “adult” gathering. There are people in this class older than me! Now, that is a feat in itself; but what a great group. They chose to come to Gulf County and their interest, care and love for it are obvious. They have “invested” here. I cleared my throat……and jumped in with both feet.

I skipped that part about “uncovering” most of my information for this class while getting a haircut. I didn’t bother to discuss my shortcomings or fears about the whole process. I was too busy marveling at their refreshingly eager and enthusiastic thirst for learning. They show up early, listen intently, take notes, ask pertinent and intelligent questions and call me to task if I stray a mite. 

They have made this study interesting and alive! And they have given me, I can assure you, much more than I have departed to them. Learning is a golden virtue no matter the age…….or which end of the podium you are looking over.             

You just wait till I get the call next year. Gulf Coast State College is going to have to pay me a whole lot more. I’ve got experience now!
