94-Year-Old Woman Graduates College With a 4.0 GPA

This 94-Year-Old Who Just Graduated College Has 1 Touching Piece of Advice

You're never too old to expand your mind. Ninety-four-year-old Amy Craton of Honolulu, HI, just received her bachelor's degree from Southern New Hampshire University. And guess what? She got a 4.0 GPA! The mother, grandma, and great-grandma put her education on the back burner to take care of her children in 1962. Fifty-four years later, she chose to take the rest of her classes online since she is in a wheelchair and hard of hearing, reports ABC7 News New York.

Once she received her diploma, she gave the news station a very important piece of advice. "You have to live," she told them. "You have to learn as long as you can learn. Go to college, go to college. Don't be afraid of it." We love her amazing attitude! Now she's going to work for her master's degree. What a woman!
