Residents may remember some special graduates at commencement ceremonies at Escanaba High School and other area schools in years past. They were World War Ii veterans. These men had not been able to graduate from high school because they answered the call to serve their country during World War II. Decades later, the Escanaba School District and other school systems presented these men with their high school diplomas - an honor long overdue. Some of the men even received their diplomas in the same graduation ceremony as their grandchildren.
