Barbara is 76 years young. She has gone to school almost every day of her life. She convinced me and a few of my colleagues to go back to school to get our degrees. Two years ago,I crossed the stage to accept my Baccalaureate. I was 53. Barbara still works with adult students who have gone back for their High School Diploma. She works about 13 hours each week and volunteers for 27 hours more.
