A fresh graduate from Mt. Hood Community College, a two year school, after being there three.
I started out in General Automotive, went there a whole year, then an exclusive two year program sponsored by Ford Motor Company called the ASSET Program started a new class.
I got invited to join, it was only open every other year to 24 people and you had to get a dealership to sponsor you.
You went to school for three months with a credit load that made it full time and a half. Something like 18 credits . Then you worked in the dealership for three months, got paid for it and college credit too. That alternated for two years.
I also worked at the dealership on Saturdays.
When it was all said and done,with me being there for three full years, I graduated PHI THETA KAPPA, with honors, made the Deans List at least four times, got included in a book I still have around here somewhere called Who’s Who In American Junior Colleges, and had a Grade Point Average of 3.7.
All while being half drunk the whole time.
As a matter of fact, I was about half shit faced in that picture.
Kinda makes ya wonder what I could have done if I had actually applied myself.
