She has now officially become the world's oldest college graduate. Nola Ochs, age 95, received her bachelor's degree from Fort Hays State University in Kansas earlier this month.
And, boy, did she receive applause: "When she was handed her degree by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, the crowd gave her a standing ovation, breaking a rule against applauding until all the names of all 2,176 graduates were read -- including that of her granddaughter, Alexandra Ochs."
As for future plans, the feisty widow turned international celebrity is thinking of going for a masters.
