After being forced to drop out of high school at 17 to help her family, Margaret Thome Bekema has finally received her diploma – at age 97!

Margaret was heartbroken when she had to drop out of high school without graduating but left school in order to look after her 3 younger siblings after her mother became ill.

Hearing of Margaret’s lifelong goal to receive her diploma, administrators at Catholic Central High School in Michigan presented her with an honorary diploma 80 years after she dropped out.

Way to go, Margaret!
