Dear Mrs. Ochs,
I am 65 and I am completing my BS in Management in August 2010. I feel like I am taking my first breath. I think learning is an experience that lives within you. There are no limits to learning. I may go on to earn a Master's Degree as well. You are a great inspiration.
Thank you.

Well, SVC from Toledo, Ohio; there always has to be one downer in the bunch. Nola Ochs had a goal; went for it; and achieved it. She is truly an inspiration to all of us. Maybe you never achieved anything worthwhile in your life; how very sad for you.

I think its just fantastic that this grandma has the energy, stamina and brain power to attend college and get her degree at her age. She should be commended as an aspiration to all that its never too late to go back to school or fulfill your dreams! May Yah/God Bless her!

I think she's fantastic to see her dream come true. My mom went back to school and graduated from high school the same year that I did. It only goes to prove that you're never too old to learn.
