Email News Alerts

A couple years ago, Kermit Rodewald was reading an article from the Minnesota Reading Corps about a need for people to read to students in the Lake Park-Audubon Elementary School. He wanted to help.


He contacted the appropriate people and found that he needed a high school diploma or GED in order to qualify, neither of which he had. So, he decided it was time to get his GED.

It took him a bit over a year, but Rodewald graduated with his GED this summer. He's 78 years old.
