After nearly six decades, a woman identified as Rebecca Inge, who decided to return to university is gearing up to graduate on May 8.
The woman was a student of North Carolina’s Shaw University in 1965 but had to put her education on hold after she got married and gave birth to her daughter.

Rebecca took up careers working for NASA during its first space shuttle mission and at Disney World as a safety instructor.
”She put her life on hold so that I could finish my 21 years, all of my education so that I could be successful today,” said her daughter, Marisa Ratliff Dunston.
When she decided to return to university Dunston, now retired from a long career serving in the U.S military, had been stationed in both Germany and Japan.
After the passing of Rebecca’s husband in 2015, she joined her daughter abroad, where she decided to return to Shaw University and further her education.
Despite the initial challenges, the 75-year-old overcame and is preparing for her graduation after nearly a six-decade journey to this degree.
