This is something that just shows that you’re never too old to go back to school! Amy Craton is 94-years old and has just graduated college with a degree and a 4.0 grade point average!
Amy says that she had to put her education back on hold in 1962 so that she could raise her children after a divorce.
“It feels good to graduate, to finish that part of my life, but I feel that I’m still on the road,” she said in an interview. “I have much more to learn.”
Amy graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in creative writing and English.
Amy wasn’t able to make it to her school’s graduation, so Southern New Hampshire University president Paul LeBlanc flew out to Honolulu where Amy lives to hand deliver her diploma!
The University’s president made it just in time for Amy’s graduation party too.
The crazy thing is, Amy isn’t done with school either! She says she wants to go back and get her Master’s degree.
