Today’s Birthday: Arnold Palmer

It's September 10, and golfer Arnold Palmer turns 86 years old today.  His career includes seven major championships, including four wins at the Masters, but he had a far greater impact off the course.  Because of his everyman roots in middle-class Latrobe, Pennsylvania, Arnold Palmer took golf out of elite country clubs and brought it to commoners.  His legions of fans were called Arnie's Army and led to him receiving many endorsements.  He even had a drink named after him.  An Arnold Palmer is half iced tea and half lemonade!  To this day people send him items to be autographed, and whenever Arnold Palmer signs something, he signs his name very legibly so that his signature can be read easily.  When you look at an item autographed by Arnold Palmer, whether it's a golf ball, a photograph, or a can of the drink that bears his name, there's no doubt Arnold Palmer signed it.  Try to keep that in mind when you send us your examinations or other documents that need our attention.  We have students from all across the country and all around the world, and sometimes other students have the same name as you do.  That's why it's very important to print your name and student number clearly on everything you send to us, starting with your enrollment application.  Doing so will allow us to provide you the kind of service you deserve as you work toward your accredited high school diploma.
