At the age of 73 and after a full career as a hospital executive, Tom Winston is set to graduate the University of Tennessee College of Law on Saturday, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Winston has retired three times, only to find himself called back to work in one form or another, and on the third try, he enrolled in law school at the age of 70. Winston said he made the choice because he needs purpose in his life. “What better resource is there for the workplace than seniors who say like I did, 'I just don’t have usefulness, let me get trained in whatever turns me on today,’” Winston said. He plans to take the bar exam in July and practice out of Chattanooga upon receiving his license.
