Jersey City Graduate - at 73 - Receives GED


Sometimes it takes a few decades to get what you want - or need. Jersey City resident Mildred Walker is proud to have worked for her GED - at 73. The young-at-heart great grandmother was at Senior Community Services Employment when she signed up for the program.

Turns out Walker was introduced to the idea by Easterseals, and with 6 great-grandchildren, this energetic woman said she had always wanted her high school degree.

Congrats to Jersey City's recent graduate!
