You'll Never Be a Success Without a College Degree

George Leef

That's what most people say, but the truth of the matter is that quite a few highly successful individuals never earned college degrees. Some of them have created great companies that ironically demand college degrees for jobs far less demanding than that of their non-college CEOs. In this week's Pope Center Clarion Call, Jenna Ashley Robinson writes about people who are very successful but who don't have any college credentials. Maybe a future piece should be about people who have college degrees but can hardly even keep a low-skill job.
