60-year-old exceptional woman wins scholarship to US university, graduates as the overall best student

A determined 60-year-old grandmother named Rhonda E. Davis has emerged as the best graduating student of the Cheyney University Of Pennsylvania, United after acing her Bachelor’s degree with an outstanding 3.97-grade point.

The 60-year-old Rhonda made it a priority to go back to school and get her college degree after missing out on attending College due to personal reasons. She set out again at the age of 56 years to achieve her dream.

Not only did she achieve her dream of earning a Bachelor’s degree, she earned two degrees from Cheyney University and also graduated as the institution’s Class of 2019 valedictorian.

Speaking on the challenges she faced in her quest to achieve her dreams, Rhonda E. Davis narrated that after telling her husband that she planned on going to college to earn her degree, he decided to leave her. But the lack of support did not stop the grandmother of 11 from going after what she wanted.
