High School Transcripts

I am looking at my own children's pending graduation from college wondering where the time went. I am glad you have made the most of your opportunities at Shimer. Best wishes for your future.


You are wise for your age. You have learned about how your choices make things important to you, such as your choice to attend Shimer. May you do well in the future.

Thank you! I feel it is only fair to point out that I am actually older than the average college senior, by quite a bit. I didn't realize how thoroughly I left out any reference to my age. Between high school and Shimer, there were a few years of community college interspersed among years of no formal education at all.

One could say that I'm rather old for my wisdom.
