Verl (Buddy) Hunt left high school 50 years to go into active military duty.
But that never meant that he forgot his dream of receiving his high school diploma.
With Bullitt Central High School principal Christy Coulter present, Hunt was presented his diploma through a special program in the district.
Calling it a project 50 years in the making, Hunt thanked his teachers. Without the dedication of the teachers, he said the country would not be what it is today.
