Vivian Fisher, 98, a resilient woman from California has given reason to why people should not underestimate a black woman’s drive to achieve excellence.
The great-grandmother has made herself proud after obtaining certification from Monrovia High School.
Black News reports that Fisher received her diploma alongside her great-grandnephew, Elijah Vance, in a drive-thru ceremony.
Fisher wasn’t able to graduate high school in her youth because she worked multiple jobs to support her family.
In spite of the setbacks, she never gave up on her dream to graduate from high school.
Principal of Monrovia High School, Kirk McGinnis, told KABC that their 2020-year "graduation ceremony would go down as one of the most unique and exceptional graduations that this school has had."
Fisher’s achievement adds to her family’s line of accomplishments.
According to Black News, her father was the first Black graduate of Monrovia High School and the first Black police officer in Monrovia.
Speaking to CBS News in the same park named after her father, Fisher said that her hard work was the reason she was able to achieve her dream and shared a message for people to never give up.
