Did You Know

Did you know, renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. James Goodrich, who separated conjoined at the head twins, received part of his schooling at a community college and was a surfer? I am always proud to hear about folks who have made contributions to society that started out at a community college. Unfortunately, he has recently died from COVID19. RIP

    1. It's sad and it's depressing. Still he accomplished so much, lived life to the fullest and left a never to be forgotten legacy.

  6. I am sorry to hear about his passing. I love that he started at community college. It seems to be a much more popular choice in the past few years (around here). Lots of people I know are going to community college to get their associate's degree and then going to another college to get their bachelor's. Saves a LOT of money.

    1. Good for your kids, Denise. CC's are a great place to get an education or the jumping off point to a higher degree.
