It wasn't all bad
Amy Craton, 94, just received her bachelor's degree, but she's already moved on and is looking forward to earning her master's.
"I feel that I'm still on the road," she told Inside Edition. "I have more to learn." The Honolulu resident began attending college in 1962, but had to put her education on hold when she went through a divorce and became a single mom. All these years later, Craton decided to finish what she started, and because she is hard of hearing and uses a wheelchair, she completed her courses online, earning a 4.0 GPA along the way.
The president of Southern New Hampshire University surprised Craton by bringing her degree to Hawaii, and the new graduate said she's proud of her accomplishment. "It feels good to finish that part of my life," she said. "I couldn't see just sitting there watching Netflix all the time." Catherine Garcia
