Tip o' the eyepatch to Jeremy Hernandez
and a second tip o' the eyepatch to Dunwoody Institute for doing the right thing:
If school bus evacuator Jeremy Hernandez wants to resume learning auto mechanics at Dunwoody College of Technology, he can do so without charge.This blog will return to its regularly-scheduled mirth and frivolity very soon, so stay tuned!
The Minneapolis school made that offer to Hernandez’s family Saturday.
Hernandez drew national attention when he played a lead role in the evacuation of 61 kids and staff from a school bus caught up in last week’s Interstate 35W bridge collapse.
They were out a field trip from Waite House community agency in the Phillips area of Minneapolis.
In news coverage afterward, Hernandez said that he was working as a youth worker at Waite House after he’d been forced to drop out of Dunwoody for lack of money. The school’s tuition and fees typically run $15,000 annually.
