This is going to seem irrelevant but stick with me here...Why Not?: My Seventy Year Plan for a College Degree
Helen Small enrolled at Akron University in 1938. While in line to enroll, she was introduced by a mutual friend to a tall, dark and handsome football and basketball star. Neither of these two graduated college because of family finances and the war, but a beautiful romance was born. After her husband’s death, Helen, determined to graduate from college, receiving her Associates Degree in 2004. She received her BA in clinical psychology in 2008. But Helen was not done yet. Helen received her Master’s Degree in 2010, becoming the second oldest Master’s recipient in UTD history. Opportunity came knocking again. UTD called and asked if she would consider working for the Center for Vital Longevity, a University of Texas sponsored research project investigating the aging brain. This book is the remarkable story of Helen Small.
