I got my GED when I was 16 going on 30 (1998) and it wasn’t until I got my Associates that I truly felt the sting of not getting my High School Diploma.

But then Washington State passed some rule, bill, law…whatever…that says anyone who has their GED and obtains their Associates qualifies to receive their High School Diploma by the college who awarded the Associates.

Thank God for Edmonds Community College who on Friday October 25th, 2019 handed me my High School Diploma. It made me cry. I realized that for 20 years I thought that ship had sailed, now I get that one small “do-over” that so many of us wish for but never get to do.

Momma, I’m a high school grad!

With Love
