The other day on the "Those Old Radio Shows" portion of the 630 Ched AM & QR77 AM radio networks (II Corus Entertainment company's) the show "Our Miss Brooks" starring Eve Arden had a unique featurette. Due to his schooling being interrupted by his war service, a 62 year old man asked the state board of education & officials at Madison High School if he could come back & finish his high school diploma in a classroom setting. Thus proving the adage that you are never to old to learn. The gent was successful in his application & the high school was very accomodating. As a man with II high school diplomas, I applaud this old comedy radio chestnut IV encouraging equal high school educational rights IV senior citizens!
