Woburn high celebrates 101-year-old graduate

101-year-old Tina Lancelota received her diploma from Woburn High School Friday, eight decades after she started school there.

She was a student in the 1930’s when the great depression hit her family hard.

She had to leave school before graduation to help take care of her eight brothers and sisters.

In the 83 years that followed, she got married, had her own kids and grandkids.

Now she’s a graduate and she says she knows what she’s going to do with that degree.

“I’m going to get a good job, I want to boss everybody,” she said.

Five generations of Lancelota’s family was at the ceremony, including two great-great-grandchildren.
