(WHAS11)—A Massachusetts high school has a new graduate, a 101-year-old woman.

She was supposed to graduate back in 1930, but left school after her sophomore year to help support her family and siblings during the depression.

It has been 83 years since she should have graduated.

Five generations of the family were present at the ceremony, including two great-great grandchildren.

She is the oldest to receive a diploma from that high school.
