Arthur Masterson

Arthur Masterson, at 96, was granted a much dreamed-of honorary high school diploma. Arthur left high school having completed all but his final year, to join the US Navy in 1945. He later served in the Korean War. Upon returning to civilian life, there was just no time or possibility of resuming his studies, given the demands of earning a living and supporting his family, first as a milkman, then with the USPS until his retirement. It’s only recently that his daughter realized not only had her father never graduated, but that he longed for that diploma. She reached out to the East Greenwich Public School system. After research and deliberation, Arthur was granted his diploma. His service in the Armed Forces and his selflessness, experience, and commitment to his country more than made up for his missing last year of studies. Hurrah!
