  • Recommended November 20, 2014 - My name is Alvin Hinnant, I attended Gompers in 1973-74 I got my GED at New York University, is there any way I can fax it to you and be an Alumni @ Gompers? Dropped out because of teen pregnancy, was my excuse. Now I realize that all it was an excuse. Diploma # 948018942 -07/94 Thanks... - Posted by Student/Alumni
