HUMBOLDT ? Magistrate Judge Leo Gensweider, who serves Neosho and Wilson counties in the 31st district court, hated school.

?The further I went, the more I hated it. I hated law school so much.?

But, Gensweider said, ?I also realized (school) is the most important thing I?m going to do in my life. The way I went from poverty to being successful was a good education, and that can still happen to anybody in this country if you are willing to work hard and study hard. Don?t take it lightly. Don?t blow it.?
