U.S. dad, son, granddaughter all graduating

Three generations of the same family, including a 72-year-old grandfather, are getting high school diplomas.

James Nunley, 36, his daughter Brittany Wright, 17, and father Jim Nunley, 72, of the Salt Lake City suburb of Cottonwood Heights, are all graduating.

Jim Nunley would have graduated in 1953 but left school with less than a year to go while working in the family's paint business.

"All those years, I kept thinking about it and thought I ought to do something about it," the elder Nunley said.

Jim Nunley entered a program for adults and his son joined him.

James Nunley, a truck driver, worked a 10-hour shift, then studied history and science each night for a month to make up 3.5 credits needed for a diploma.

Father and son graduate Saturday. Brittany is graduating June 5.

"It's a long time overdue. Weird," James Nunley said. "I don't even think it's hit me yet."
