Great-Grandparents Going Back to College

Cool Radio

To understand how cool this is, here’s some background on Harold and Frances Gates: They are both now retired great-grandparents and on the hunt to learn some more.

Even at 69 years old, they have entered into the National Honor Society of Lone Star College and hold 4.0 GPAs (not put together…EACH). They are about to get their associates degrees and are considering getting their bachelors.

Both started college having to set up a website for one of their classes. Pretty impressive since most seniors don’t even have a computer. Imagine Harold or Frances sitting next to you in your class at UB, Buff State or ECC? How awesome would that be! (How awesome would it be if they got better grades than you, haha!)

What’s next?

Harold says: ”Well, we’ll wake up one morning and we’ll find the next challenge”.

What an inspiration.
