After graduating in the summer of 1980, I knew I wanted my life to count.
I did graduate with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 1948.
I dropped out of school for a semester, transferred to another college, switched to an art major, graduated, got married, and for a while worked as a graphic designer.
My personal advice is to go to school first and get a liberal arts education, and then if you want to pursue acting, go to graduate school.
I’ve told my children that when I die, to release balloons in the sky to celebrate that I graduated. For me, death is a graduation.
They couldn’t sign me until after I graduated, but right after graduation day, I had nine different organizations there wanting to sign me.
From kindergarten to graduation, I went to public schools, and I know that they are a key to being sure that every child has a chance to succeed and to rise in the world.
People in my family and camp who grew up listening to rap music love ‘We Are Young.’ I’ve heard it play at weddings. I’ve heard it in graduation parties. It’s a big idea and big song.
School desegregation is associated with higher graduation rates, greater employability, higher earnings, and decreased rates of incarceration.
I didn’t even go to graduation.
