“I am a 61-year-old freshman. I had a few hours in 1970, but I didn’t finish. I am a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, so partying and living that lifestyle were more important to me at that time. I just hit a bottom at 52. I got tired of it and to be honest with you God just brought me to that place of desperation. I’ve been sober for nine years and now I’m having a hell of a time! I love this school. I love it with a passion.”
