103-Year Old Woman Graduates from High School

Marie Hunt of Spring Green, Wisconsin was supposed to graduate from high school in 1928. But she had to drop out of school after the eighth grade in order to take care of her younger siblings. Later, she worked as a store clerk, a childcare provider, and owned a business with her husband.

The high school diploma remained unfinished business. She wanted it. And on Friday, River Valley High School awarded Ms. Hunt one in a ceremony at the assisted living facility where she lives.

According to the Census Bureau, less than 30% of Americans graduated from high school in 1929. Yet most of those people went on to hold decent jobs and support a family anyway. Things have changed so much.
