106-year-Old Receives High School Diploma

Posted: Updated:




Reba Williams should've graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1925.

At 106, she finally did Wednesday afternoon.

Williams was assigned a book report as one of the last assignments at high school.

But she had already read the assigned book, didn't like it and didn't want to read it again.

After Williams' story ran in a local paper, someone reached out to the school board, who voted to approve the diploma.

Williams is still an avid reader, but as for college plans, she's made it quite clear that she's not interested.
