‘It’s never too late’

Phil Koch (pronounced “Kotch”) finally earns his bachelor’s degree from UNC-Greensboro on Friday…becoming the oldest graduate in UNC-G’s history at 82.

“It’s never too late,” Koch said in a recent interview at his Greensboro home.

“But that’s easier said than done.”

Koch will likely NOT attend Friday’s commencement ceremony at the Greensboro Coliseum. “Too many people.”  But, the UNCG history department holds a smaller ceremony for its graduates just once a year, in May. Koch said he thinks he and his wife will attend that event…if he’s available?

Mr Phil has two grandchildren graduating next May. And he won’t miss that!!!!

Officials in Southern California issued a rare ‘wind warning’ to millions of residents from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Experts say that Santa Ana winds, one of the nation’s most notorious wind events, have fueled numerous destructive wildfires and are expected to whip through the region for the remainder of the week.  The three major wildfires burning in Los Angeles and Ventura counties have already put tens of thousands of people under evacuation orders and destroyed nearly 200 homes and buildings.   LA Times:  https://goo.gl/k8Nk5i
