Meet an “AMAZING!” who finally fulfilled her life-long dream!
OLIVIA BURNETTE, at 80, fulfilled a life-long dream of getting her diploma from the Ohio State University College of Education and Human Ecology. It’s a dream she’d started some 50 years ago, but then due to unexpected surgery and subsequently raising a family on her own, it was a dream she had to forego – even though she wasn’t all that far from having the necessary credits to graduate. Throughout her life, Olivia, a true believer in education, always took courses whenever she could. This ended up paying off for Olivia, because when her granddaughter, Falencia, a 2011 Ohio State graduate herself, endeavored to find out from the College of Education and Human Ecology what was needed for Olivia to graduate, those courses added up to sufficient credits. A dream come true, indeed.
