Another Nice Kirk Douglas Story

In 2000 West Granada Continuation school in Northridge was renamed Kirk Douglas Continuation School as a way to honor Douglas and his wife Anne for their great work rebuilding school and park playgrounds in the Los Angeles area.

Douglas was on hand yesterday for the high school graduation of 22 formerly "at-risk" students who will now be going on to community college and military service.

Douglas spoke at the graduation and then gave each of the 22 students a $500 check.

It's so nice to come across uplifting stories like this about people who are committed to investing their time and money to better their communities.
