U.S.: 105-year-old woman graduates from Stanford University

You are never too old to learn…

A 105-year-old woman obtained her master's degree from Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE), where she began her studies almost 80 years ago.

Virginia "Ginnie" Hislop completed the needed classes at Stanford in the 1940s.

World War II started just as she was about to submit her final master's thesis, interfering with her graduation plans.

Ginnie Hislop left school to marry her then-boyfriend, George Hislop, who had been called up to serve in the war. She finally helped with the war effort and focused on raising her family.

Ginnie Hislop, who has two children, four grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren, has spent decades serving on school and college boards in Washington state.

Along the way, Stanford lifted its thesis requirement, and Ginnie Hislop returned to graduate, walking the stage on Sunday, 16 June, to accept her master's degree in education.

When GSE Dean Daniel Schwartz presented her diploma, Ginnie Hislop could be heard exclaiming, "My goodness, I've waited a long time for this."
