97 Year Old Cries Tears Of Joy After Finally Receiving Her High School Diploma E-mail
(2 votes)
97-year-old Margaret Thome Bekema was supposed to graduate from Grand Rapids Catholic Central High in 1936, but sadly home life forced her to leave. She had to take care of her siblings and her mother who was sick with cancer, but recently with the help of a distant relative Bekema was finally able to complete her honorary diploma, a whole 79 years later than originally planned.

“I thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Bekema told Mlive. “I had to quit school to take over the family. It was hard, you have no idea how hard that was. I loved high school and I had lots of friends.” Bekema's life has been one of hardship and sacrifice and it seems fitting that her inspiring story is shared with students currently at the college.

Margaret Bekema cried tears of joy when she was presented with her graduation gap.
