A Huntsville woman is finally getting her college degree from the University of Alabama after nearly 70 years of waiting.
87-year-old Pat Cassity will be graduating with her Bachelors of Arts in Music this Friday. Cassity was one quarter away from graduating in 1950 when she left the university to work for the air force in Alaska. She says that she immediately regretted her decision not to finish her education.
She hopes her story will inspire others to never give up on their dreams.
