At 82 She’s Getting Her Diploma at Last

Douf Belden, At 82, she’s getting her diploma at last, St. Paul Pioneer Press, June 4, 2008, at 5B.
Even after retiring from many years in the work force, 82 year old Dorothy Orosz still wanted her high school diploma. She started working at a young age and was not able to finish high-school, so when she saw a chance to complete her degree she felt compelled to do take it. The Roseville night program has been around for nearly 40 years, yet she will be its oldest graduate to date. Most of the students were young adults. She took both day and night classes for two years to get her diploma, and felt a great sense of accomplishment when she finished.
