Myrna Brady, a 79 year old woman, graduated from Governors State University this past Saturday, June 12, 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts. Governors State University is located in the Chicago South Suburbs, just 35 miles south of Chicago.
This story is near and dear to my heart because Myrna happens to be my mother-In-law.
It was always her dream to return to college and graduate. But she was willing to delay finishing college when she was 18 to get married, then assist her husband in his new ministry and over the years raise 6 daughters.
By the way, each of her daughters are college graduates, three of them have advance degrees. Yesterday she joined them as a college graduate.
In an age where people are always leaving things undone, we salute you for never giving up on your dream!
