Never Too Late to Learn

A 94-year-old Australian great-great-grandmother who quit school at 12 is
said to have become the world's oldest person to earn a university masters
degree.

Medical Science Masters Degree graduate Phyllis Turner, from Australia's
Adelaide University, began studying for her postgraduate degree at age 90 and
received her award this week.

Truly inspirational. Next time I feel I'm too old to try something new, I'll remember Phyllis Turner.

This is really touching.

My father left school in England at the age of eleven to be apprenticed to a traveling theatre company.

He earned his masters at the age of fifty eight.

One is never to old to earn an education.
