We all believe at a certain age, there is nothing more for us to do in our lives. Ann Colagiovanni age 97, has proved us all wrong. Ann dropped out of high school due to the depression and the need to help her family. Her father asked Ann to work for him, at his butcher shop, to help increase the family’s finances. Ann worked for her father for many years and never returned to school.

Many years later, Ann’s grandson was preparing to graduate from high school. Around that time, Ann received information that stated her old high school was presenting her with an honorary degree dated 1934. That was the year Ann was scheduled to graduate if she would not have dropped out. Ann was truly excited as she read her name on the award. On the day of her grandsons graduation, Ann sat in her wheel chair in her cap and grown as a proud graduate. She is an inspiration to all people across the world.
