An elderly woman from DeRidder will soon be a college graduate.
Friday Anne Storms, 87, will be among those receiving a degree from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches.
Storms, will receive an Associate of Arts in History that she earned at the Leesville-Fort Polk campus. She took advantage of a program that allows those 60 or over to take a 3-hour course tuition free.
Storms dropped out of college when she got married in 1946. She decided to go back to college after her husband passed away.
Storms said "After I lost my husband, I felt lost". "I kind of got isolated for a while and going back to college helped me get more active again."
Storms also said the other students took to her right away and she made some great friends.
