A 99-Year-Old Woman's Biggest Regret Was Not Graduating High School . . . So Her

The biggest regret in life for 99-year-old Audrey Crabtree from Waterloo, Iowa was not getting her high school diploma.
In 1932 when she was 17, Audrey missed a bunch of school after she got whiplash, and also had to take care of her sick grandmother.  So she fell one credit short.  Still, she led a great life, had a family including five grand kids and four GREAT grand kids, and ran a flower business for 28 years.  But she always talked about how she never got that diploma.  Well, back in July one of her grandchildren realized just HOW important it was to her and decided to make a few calls.  And at a ceremony on Monday, Audrey's high school presented her with a diploma . . . 81 years after she was supposed to graduate.  Audrey's family was on hand to watch it happen, as well as a bunch of seventh graders and their teacher who wanted them to see how important graduating is.  All of which made Audrey pretty emotional.  And when her high school's current principal gave her the diploma, she joked that she feels a whole lot smarter now.
