VIDEO: Oh No She Didn’t! Student Catches Teacher Stealing From Students During Class! 

An 106-year-old woman is finally going to get her high school diploma in Ohio!

Reba Williams completed high school in central Ohio, but was denied her diploma because she refused to read a book assignment by a teacher. She said she had read the book once, and didn’t want to read it again.

Talk about stubborn!

But Williams’ stand wasn’t in vain. The Mount Vernon Board of Education approved issuing her diploma earlier this month.

According to the Associated Press, a retired English teacher at Mount Vernon High School had approached the board about giving Williams the diploma after reading about her earlier this year.

Williams is said to still have a sharp mind and lives with her daughter in Columbus.

Congratulations!
