Barry Rodgers graduated from the Mature Student Program at Portage Collegiate Institute (PCI) this month.
His journey to get his high school diploma was one filled with hard work and determination.
"It is always something I wanted to do," said Rodgers. "I was always a little embarrassed that I didn't complete my high school education."
Rodgers said he had always thought about returning to high school and that opportunity finally presented itself when he was informed of the Mature Student Program.
"Getting my diploma was always at the back of my mind. It was something I always wanted to do," he said. "When I found out about the program, I was encouraged to pursue my goal. So many people have inspired me; I can't thank them enough."
