It’s Really Never Too Late…To Get Your Diploma!

Mildred Diploma


This, my Woodstock Early Bird friends, is Woodstock’s Mildred Gay, who, in 1926 had to drop out of high school ¬†at 16 to care for her sick mother.

Today, at the age of 103, Theresa Mildred Gay, accepted an honorary diploma from Woodstock Union High School.

Windsor Central Supervisory Union Superintendent Alice Worth presented the diploma to Mildred at her Merten’s House home saying she appreciated that Mildred thought enough about the importance of an education to be willing to have friends pursue getting the diploma for her after so many years have gone by.
