At 70 years old, Rosa MacDonald-Burns has finally graduated from college.

The graduate earned her bachelor’s of applied technology from Brazosport College.

Brazosport College held a virtual commencement on June 13 to commemorate the achievements of this year’s graduates after being forced to cancel in-person celebrations this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Until then, her family is celebrating her graduation from coast to coast.

In a special video organized by her son, the graduate’s loved ones are sharing their congratulations to her.
