Mike the Mule made it through school, but didn't graduate!

Roy Bernhardt, son of Ira Leo, walked the 1.5 miles to school at the Yost one room school house for 4 years and then went to Granite Quarry School. A story that Dad would rather not be told is about Mike the mule. Not only did they use Mike around the farm but Roy would ride the mule. One weekend when he was in his early teens (old enough to know better) he was in Granite Quarry with Mike. On a dare, Roy rode Mike in one door, down the hall and out the other door of the school. Mike made it “through” school but never received a diploma.

As told to Ben Bernhardt
