78-Year-Old gets GED

Posted:

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- It's never too late to go back to school.

Clara Guenther, 78, walked across the stage Friday night at Northcentral Technical College.

Her daughter, who works at the college, presented Clara her GED diploma.

Clara received her GED 19 years ago but never got the chance to attend the ceremony.

She decided to return to school after she raised her six daughters.

"I was a stay at home mom, we had our own business, and one day I thought, I have time and I can go get my GED," said Guenther.

Clara didn't go to high school; she had to stay home and do chores.

 

But, Clara has no plans to work after graduating.

She'll remain a grandma for 11 grand children and 6 great, grand kids.
