Learn as if you were to live forever.”  I thought of Gandhi’s quote when I read about Tom Winston, who at 73 graduates from the University of Tennessee Law School this month. Retired and having concluded there’s “only so much golf you can play,” he decided to attend law school at age 70.

Besides having a resilient and hungry mind, Winston also benefited from something unique to the Volunteer State. Tennesseans 65 years and older can attend any state public institution of higher learning tuition-free. Winston says he’s “surprised more people haven’t taken advantage of it.”

His parting advice is to, “Enjoy the magic of learning all over again.” See “Stat Of The Week: Extreme ‘Non-Trad’ Law Student”
