Jake Query, a prominent figure in Indianapolis sports radio, recently celebrated his graduation from Indiana University Kokomo. What makes his story remarkable is that he began his bachelor’s degree in 1991. He just completed it this year.
His decision to return to college was prompted by an on-air conversation in which his interviewer referred to him as an IU graduate. He explained that he had attended IU but did not complete his degree. Query is honest. That led to a call from the Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education who encouraged him to set an example for others by returning to complete his degree.
