Hey blog readers! Jenn here from the AARP Communications team – sharing the story of one of our volunteers Zig Sokolnicki. He gave the commencement speech this past weekend in Chicago to a group of students at Wilbur Wright College. Eleven Gerontology students completed the Basic Gerontology Certification. As Zig’s speech proves – you’re always young enough to learn something new!
