Via NBC: 

One hundred three-year-old Agrace HospiceCare patient Marie Hunt received her high school diploma Friday.

Marie Hunt is a life-long Spring Green resident. She said she had no way of getting to and from high school so she stayed home after 8th grade and helped raised her eight younger brothers and sisters.

She would have been a graduate of the River Valley High School's class of 1928.


You have to wonder if she smoked cigarettes with the cool kids during recess. Or how she handled dodgeball during gym class.
