Four graduates get their diplomas almost 70 years after they left school

Four graduates graduated Saturday from Springdale High School in Springdale, Arkansas, nearly 70 years after leaving high school. Carl Stults, Bobby Burke, Charles Leroy Moon and Bob Self all left high school in the 1950s to enlist in the military. The four students from the 1956 Classroom finally received their late diplomas at the Bud Walton Arena on Saturday. Springdale Superintendent Jared Cleveland read letters from Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and MP Steve Womack at graduation. They served during the Korean conflict and beyond. At that time, they were not thinking to themselves, they were not thinking “What about me?” They answered the call of duty. “This is not the truest spirit in America,” Womack said in a statement.
