Always Keep Learning

Posted by Criswell Freeman on

January 8.

On this day in 1935, Elvis Aaron Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi. His twin brother, Jesse Garon Presley, was stillborn. In 1953, Elvis graduated from from L. C. Humes High School in Memphis, Tennessee and landed a job, as a truck driver. One day, on a whim, he stopped his truck in front of a local recording studio and paid four dollars to record a song for his mother. A local producer heard the record and signed him up. Within two years, Elvis was America's one-of-a-kind musical icon. The young man who introduced much of the world to rock and roll, was once questioned about his musical training. He replied, “I don’t know anything about music. In my line of work, you don’t have to.” The rest of us, however, are well-advised to make continuing education a lifelong habit.
