I was curious to know what her degree was in...it didn't say in the article.
I wonder who would hire someone that age? I guess maybe she was just in it for the education and not necessarily for an occupation. That takes alot of determination! Oh gosh now I have Dr. Seuss syndrome!

Yeah Pokie, but she is not through yet. She said she is going on for her Master's degree. That is determination. I hope she makes it.

Great achievements, but they just seem like a waste somehow. I can't imagine where she would actually use these degrees except to show off to friends and family.

Although, I am very impressed that someone her age is so resistant to senility that she is capable of earning a college degree, especailly in an age of education that is far beyond her own.
