In this article, Dale Schroeder is described as having been a working-class, bring your lunch kind of guy. He had a quiet dream: he never had the opportunity to go to college. So DS went to work every day, and he worked hard.
And he saved more than $3 million to be awarded as tuition money after he died (in 2005).
Thirty-three people graduated from college debt-free thanks to DS. When they met recently to honor this man they’d never met, they gathered around his old lunch box.
A simple object, a quiet man, and a powerful symbol of what’s possible when we pursue what matters to us.
