Fact #38

I dropped out of high school.
I am such a bad example.
BUT, I did go back and get my GED.
I was surprised to learn how many famous people there are who dropped out of high school. Would you believe Simon Cowell from American Idol? How about Joseph Pulitzer- founder of the Pulitzer Prize? Albert Einstein, Walt Disney..... several US Presidents and many millionaires are on the list.
I don't feel as bad as I did at the beginning of this post.
BUT, I won't let me children or godchildren drop out of school.

Stay in School, Zach.
The Tassle is worth the Hassle.

a lot of people drop out-many have really good reasons. Just never stop learning.

as for Simon Cowell from AMerican IDol-he is still an idiot. No amount of education degrees would ever make him otherwise. I am so glad I no longer have local broadcast tv.

I am watching ESPN.

Your funny! My sister dropped out of school when she got pregnant - now she has five children and is currently in school to become a lawyer! She is very ambitious. I personally do not think graduating highschool determines what you can or cannot achieve.
