On these early days in September, school begins for countless young people across our country. Small children, excited yet timid, let go of their mom or dad’s hand and bravely enter their first experience with formal education. It is a major step that will be celebrated with kindergarten graduations complete with missing teeth and mortar boards made of coffee filters. These milestone celebrations will pave the way for grade school, middle school, and high school graduations. Many will go on to college and some will complete that initial degree and even additional degrees. But the journey is never over. Learning IS a lifelong adventure.
