COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, Utah (AP) -- Three generations of the same family are getting high school diplomas: James Nunley, 36, daughter Brittany Wright, 17, and father Jim Nunley, 72.
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.
He asked his son if he would join him in a program for adults offered by the Granite School District.
James Nunley, a truck driver, worked a 10-hour shift, then studied history and science each night for a month to make up 3-point-5 credits needed for a diploma.
Father and son graduate Saturday. Brittany is graduating from Hillcrest High School on June 5th.
