After dropping out of high school in his freshman year to fight in World War II, 90- year - old veteran Luke Walsh is receiving his diploma from the New Jersey

Michael Bivins Receives Honorary High School Diploma After Dropping Out In 10th Grade. Congratulations to Michael Bivins on receiving his honorary high school diploma this morning from Belmont High School in Belmont, Massachusettes.

“He was really defined by that moment of having to drop out of school, so I got to work thinking how can I change that thinking and celebrate how much he accomplished,” explained Tamara Pierre, Lake Ridge Care Center.

Even though a young Cliff had to make some tough decisions, he still kept learning. He saved the family farm, married his bride, became a welder and bus driver — with an acute mechanical mind.

“He’s a really smart man, really good values, he can do anything you put in front of him,” Andrew Hanson, Cliff’s son said.

So the staff at Lake Ridge Care Center contacted Benson High School, who decided the time had finally come for Cliff to receive his diploma.

“He’s an amazing guy and I think he worked really hard to earn this,” Ellie Hanson, Cliff’s grandaughter added.

Cliff Hanson’s had the knowledge for years, now he has a paper to prove it.

Buffalo Bills Fans Brave Freezing Temps to Greet Team Plane at Airport in Middle of the Night .
The Buffalo Bills secured a playoff spot by doing some wounded duck hunting Sunday night in Pittsburgh. They've won 10 games for the first time since 1999 and have a slim chance of winning the AFC East, a feat all non-Patriots teams have only dreamed of pulling off for over a decade. This is all a great delight to Buffalo's passionate fanbase, which has never once allowed lackluster play on the field to get in the way of having a good time or risking great bodily harm.
