I graduated at 65 years old and went to work at the Phoenix VA Hospital clinics. That was a very rewarding experience for me. The instructors I had at the colledge (at that time called Apollo College) were excellent they taught what we needed to know and went beyond explaining a great deal in detail that made it easier to understand. I gave the speach at the graduation which made me feel very proud and I pointed out to the graduation class how important it was to thank their families and the staff at the college for the sacrifices made so they could attend school and then begin a carreer. It was an oppurtunity for me to expand my horizens, to do something I had always wanted to do. I truly think it is an experience every young or elderly person should try.
