Getting your education is important... At any age. Just ask 97 year old Evie Eaves.

The Amarillo senior citizen received her GED today. Eaves says she never finished high school, because she was married at just 17.

She hadn't thought about going back until talking one day with her great-granddaughter.

"She just took me to the college and we just did it." Eaves says.

She says she would like to learn to play the piano now... And is even considering going to college.
