This past Friday, was a gratifying moment for 99-year old Doreetha Daniels. She completed her life’s goal of graduating from College of the Canyons (COC) in Santa Clarita, Calif., with an associate degree in social sciences.
In a COC press release, Daniels said she wanted to finish her education to better herself. But her journey, which started in spring 2009, has been wrought with personal difficulties — from multiple strokes to sight and hearing issues to the revocation of her driver’s license.
Daniels, is the oldest graduate in the university’s history.
Now that’s what we call perseverance!
