Tell me if you've heard this one before

A typical continuing higher education adult student story.  She's setting a wonderful example.  Of course, if she'd had a degree, maybe she'd be governor now.

Indiana Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman is using the recent earning of her first college degree to urge others to do the same.

Skillman received an associate's degree with a concentration in business from Indiana Wesleyan University last month at the age of 59. She's taking this semester off, but plans to continue taking classes toward a bachelor's degree.

Skillman tells The Times of Munster that she took some college classes over the years, but concentrated after high school on her jobs in local government in southern Indiana's Lawrence County and her family.
