How often can someone say they received a diploma with their brother or sister? Let alone in the same graduating class, but in the same car with children in the back seat?
That was the case for Alicia and Salvador Martinez, who were among 65 graduates of the Fairfield-Suisun Adult School expected to pick up their diplomas Wednesday morning. The siblings, eight years apart, showed up in relatively positive spirits to get their General Education Diploma certificate, although they weren’t technically walking a graduation stage.
“Siblings, to graduate, and me being older, anybody can do it,” Alicia said. “We got jobs, we got kids – it’s never too late.”
