I just happened to be crusin around some posts we did earlier this year, and this reminded me of something. When I got my MBA (I was 47 and worked my butt off, worked a full time and part time job..but got a 4.0), when we were sitting getting ready to go onstage to receive our diplomas, I was the last in line for the MBA'ers. There was a girl sitting next to me who was getting an Assoc. degree in something or other....they called her onstage and gave her this HUGE award and $$ for school because she "overcame" an adversity.
She was in a Sea-Doo accident...ran into a concrete pier. Broke many bones, but she still finished school. Sounds great huh? When we all sat back in our seats she said to me..."not bad considering I was drunk and high as hell when this happened". I am totally sure the school didn't know this.
Why? Someone tell me WHY?????
