Woman Graduates College After 19 Years
Kathy Vitzthum took her first class at Iowa State in 1992. Since then, she’s continued taking one college class per semester while working at raising a family. Now, 19 years later, she’s graduating with a degree in accounting, and fulfilling a promise she made to her father years ago.
Gawker was kind enough to bring this woman’s story to our attention and we thought we’d bring it to yours. Because not only does she deserve a little recognition for having the determination to stick with it for 19 years while holding a job and raising a family, but she’s also done the one thing no one else has. (Poor Cappie he left after just 5 years.)
She’s managed to prove all those people who say “you won’t be in college forever” wrong. She proved to people everywhere that if you really want to you can make college last. So come on ladies, let’s tip our hats to the woman that didn’t just make her own dream come true, but ours too.
I bet you graduating seniors are re-thinking your plans now, aren’t ya?
