Old Woman Cries After She Gets Her High School Diploma

November 03, 2015  |  Difficulty: Easy


A touching scene happened last week, when a 97-years-old woman finally received an honorary diploma from the High School she quit 79 years ago.

Ap reports that Margaret Thome Bekerna had to leave Catholic Central High in 1936 to take care of her family after her mother was diagnosed with cancer. She said that this broke her heart.

"It was hard, you have no idea how hard that was. I loved high school and I had lots of friends," she said.
