Porter Gets To Say 'Thanks' To The Man Who Changed His Life Decades Earlier

Dec 14, 2018

Growing up, Thomas Porter was a bad seed who was as likely to turn his mom onto marijuana as he was to turn up for school. He was rebellious. He was a hell-raiser. He was just not quite right. 

Predictably his stoner, drop-out ways led to his familial excommunication.

By the time he tried to get right, he thought it might be too late. But someone opened a door for him in an unlikely place, at a migrant GED program.

Listen to this lovely story about second chances and gratitude from the now Dr. Thomas Porter.

This story was recorded 12.11.18 at Brick as part of Worth Repeating's "Opportunity Knocks" show.
