Turning 100 is a huge milestone in life. Earning your high school diploma is also a big one. For Albert Montella in Pennsylvania he recently was able to celebrate both at the same time.
Albert was given his his high school diploma right before turning 100 years old. You may be wondering why he never got it in the first place? Don’t worry, he has a really good reason. Albert left school early to help his family pay bills, and to fight in World War II. All these years later the school held a one-man graduation ceremony outside his retirement home the other day.
