(KLTV) - A 94-year-old Massachusetts woman proved it is never too late to achieve your goals.

After dropping out of high school in the 1930s to work in a mill, helping her family through the Great Depression, Genevieve Johnson decided to go back to school 78 years later. She graduated from Westford Academy High School over the weekend.

Johnson said, "Why did I do this? Well I don't have many more years left and I wanted to see that I had graduated." She added, "If I go to heaven, I'll take my diploma with me."
