Teaching Story - Its Never Too Late
by Life Positive
In 1936, it was a rare thing to find a job before you were out of high school and Eleanorís family needed that money, so she willingly sacrificed her degree. She worked for several years after leaving school and even attended night school for typing and bookkeeping.
It was on the eve of her 90th birthday that her children found out what had always nagged their mother. Eleanorís greatest disappointment was that she had to quit school half a year before she would have graduated. Her children then contacted Lake View and the school secretary Karen Siciliano took this on as a mission as she really appreciated the childrenís efforts to grant their motherís wish.
Eleanor Benzís diploma was approved and on her 90th birthday on May 30, 2009, she received her diploma dated February 1, 1936, along with a cap and gown with a 1936 tassel and wooden replica of Lake View in the 1930s. An ecstatic Benz said she felt blessed!
Eleanor Benz has set an example that if you persist and have faith, you can achieve anything, no matter how impossible it seems! Also, the loving gesture made by her children underlines the fact that sacrifice always pays. Eleanor received the repayment of her sacrifice for her family in the form of her most cherished dream coming true, so all of us just need to remember that hope indeed floats!
