Madeline Elizabeth Adams, an 80-year-old woman, has achieved a remarkable milestone by earning a Bachelor’s degree after leaving school in 1960. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies, with a specialization in Criminal Justice from the University of Nebraska, Omaha, in the United States.
According to Madeline, she started her Bachelor’s degree studies at the university in 1960 but faced some challenges that forced her to drop out. However, she remained determined to complete her education and finally achieved her lifelong dream.
Madeline Adams explained that she had to leave school in 1960 because life happened, including raising three children and switching careers, which took her away from her immediate environment. But with the encouragement of her children, who didn’t want her to become idle, she returned to school to finish what she started so many years ago.
Madeline’s achievement has become a source of inspiration and perseverance to her children and great-grandchildren, and she hopes to encourage others to pursue their dreams, no matter how long it takes. “I just want to put a period on something I started back in 1960,” she said.
