‘Age is Just a Number,’ 95 Y.O. Violet Proves by Graduating High School

It was reported by Fox2now that a 95-year-old woman, Violet, from Jonesburg, Missouri, recently attended her high school graduation ceremony. Her granddaughter, who was a senior at the same high school joined her as they both got their graduating certificates.

Granny Violet aspired to finish high school and so, she was homeschooled by her daughter who is a teacher herself.

Hats off to the student as well as the teacher, no doubt teaching is one of the noblest professions in the world. One needs to be extremely selfless and generous to be a good teacher, especially in such a case where the leader can possibly demand extra attention and compassion. 

These kinds of stories of perseverance are not unheard of. ScooNews reported a similar story of a grandfather from India defeating ageism sometime back. Read the story here: https://www.scoonews.com/news/indian-grandfather-defeats-ageism-gets-degree-at-93-8833
