Howard Student From 1930s Finally Graduates
A former student of the Howard School has now graduated, more than 80 years later.
Claudia Mae Hill-Parries helped to raise her brothers and sisters when her Mother died.
That’s why she never finished school back in the 1930s.
But now, she has her diploma, at the age of 98.
Claudia wanted to come and visit the school one last time, and that’s when her family got the idea to do something.
Her family worked with school leaders to make sure she got an honorary diploma recognizing her time at Howard High School.
