An 87-year-old Ashland resident has earned his GED certificate.
He had never graduated from high school. So a year ago he began studying for the GED test and attending adult education classes.
Ashland Community and Technical College Adult Education Director Penny Qualls said that McGinnis was more than 60 years older than most students, but he was an inspiration to them.
Now that he has finally graduated from high school, McGinnis says he is thinking about giving college a try, especially because his age qualifies him to take the classes for free.
