Kudos for your article on Zachary Olkewicz receiving a perfect score on his GED exam ("On GED Exam, the Dropout Had an Answer for Everything," June 20). In this time of war, terrorism and economic turmoil, how wonderful to see an article on such a terrific young man make the front page. It was refreshing and uplifting and gives hope for the future.
In the face of adversity this individual rose to the top and shines! Many people would not have the dedication and focus for education that he does and would have been easily derailed. He should not feel bad that his high school diploma was achieved via GED.
