Great grandma graduates

A great-grandma’s upcoming college graduation proves there’s no age limit on overcoming a lifetime of challenges.

“It’s never too late to achieve your aspirations in life,” says San Francisco’s Jules Patrice Means, 67, who will graduate from the University of California, Berkeley, this summer with a near-perfect record of all A’s and one B, reports Berkeley News. 

“I will walk across the stage with the utmost grace and feeling that I accomplished my goals at one of the most prestigious universities in the world,” she says of achieving her dream. Unfortunately, the school had to reschedule the original May 16 ceremony over coronavirus concerns.

Still, Means, who is described as “down to earth” by her fellow students, will receive her degree in sociology to go along with her whopping five associates degrees that she earned in 2017 at her previous college.
