15 years later, all I can say is ‘thank you’
Fifteen years ago this week, I made a life-altering decision. And it’s because of that decision that I’m writing to you today.
I was just about to complete my first semester of college. But even though I already had the credits to move on to a four-year school (and would soon make the President’s List with a straight-A report card), it was “highly recommended” by the folks in vocational rehabilitation at the VA that I complete two more semesters at DMACC in Boone.
As I’ve written before, I went to college planning to become a computer network administrator, not a journalist. I started working at the campus newspaper — then called “Bear Facts” (today, it’s called The Banner) — because I needed extra income, not to make a career for myself.
