It is certainly clear: college completion counts. The lifetime earning potential of a student who does not complete higher education is more than $1 million less than an individual with a college degree, according to the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
Perhaps more important is the sense of satisfaction and pride college graduates feel when they can say “I did it!” There is no question that the benefits of completing college are enormous for graduates, their employers and the community.
Again, congratulations to WGU Indiana, Indiana’s eighth state university. Let’s encourage those who once started down the path of a college degree to complete that journey. Let’s inspire them to make the investment that will pay dividends for long after. And let’s make this a sustaining legacy in Indiana.
Allison Barber, chancellor, WGU Indiana
Thimlars create great restaurant
Roses to the Thimlars, who had the insight to take the old Firestone building and turn it into a most impressive restaurant for Logansport. They always had a wonderful vision at the Country View, and they have carried that vision to this new chapter in their lives.
They took an old building that is part of Logansport’s history and turned it into a gorgeous restaurant that Logansport so badly needed. They are to be commended for all their hard work.
Betty J. Denton, Logansport
