There’s a saying that it’s never to late to complete your education. That saying was very true in the case of Ms. Reba Williams of Ohio. Ms. Williams recently received her high school diploma at the tender age of 106. Yes, 106 years old.
According to, The News Journal In Mansfield, ”Mount Vernon superintendent presented Reba Williams with the diploma Wednesday at her apartment in Columbus. She even got to wear a traditional graduation cap brought by the retired Mount Vernon English teacher who urged the school board to award the diploma.
Williams has said she completed high school in Mount Vernon but was denied her diploma because she refused to read a final book assigned by a teacher. She’d read the book once and didn’t want to read it again.
Williams says she hopes current students realize that learning is important and that they probably shouldn’t follow her example.”
Congratulations Ms. Williams!
