94-Year-Old Woman Receives High School Diploma 79 Years After Dropping Out

Here's today's feel-good story:

Grace Lee McClure celebrated her high school graduation last week at the age of 94 in a special honorary ceremony that was put together by her grandchildren.

She dropped out of Hazel Green High School at age 16 in 1942 as her husband went off to fight in World War II.

"She never ever mentioned regretting anything in life. She would never take it back because she absolutely loved my grandfather and that was just what she wanted to do, but I think this was very important to her," said her granddaughter Erin Wilson who helped put the ceremony together.

"I am so grateful," Grace said. "It's better late than never, isn't it?"
