I think that was something she wanted to accomplish in her life and it's just wonderful and goes to show every young person that it's never too late to continue your education.

Congratulations to the graduate. When we stop learning we are on our way to dying. However, how about an update on this story. The way I read it she was graduated three years ago. This seems a little like last year's (or three years ago) news. Has she got a job yet?

lol, our Marxist 'colleges' just print diplomas for anyone willing to pay. Not about learning the truth, but about the ability to pay for a retarded propaganda 'education' based upon some level of neo-satanism.

Maybe not, but it was important to her. Maybe it was a Karmic quest, something she had to accomplish. I'd hate to have to do it all over again if I missed something the first time here. Who knows.

Good for Hazel. I wonder if she's already looking forward to her 10-year class reunion.

I'm not saying Hazel is old, but she was the DJ at the Boston Tea Party.

Never mind.

This was a stupid comment following a goofy joke playing off on another thread.

My bad.

It really is cool to see a senior continuing to achieve great things.

No insult or be little-ing intended for this lady at all. <3

Yeah, it took me a couple times through to get that. Basically, this particular 94 year-old graduated this last Saturday. However, there was someone else who set the world record 3 years ago; because it's thematically related, they decided to throw that last confusing fact in there just for kicks and giggles.
