After graduating high school in 1974, a mother of four went back to college in 2009.

After being a student with her youngest son (27), she graduated with him this year.

She worked 3 jobs while going back to school in her 50's-60's!

She and her son never shared classes, but would run into each other from time to time.

She made it a point to not embarrass him on campus. But her son did help her with some classes and homework.

The mother of four is graduating with a degree in child development.
