Granddaughter graduates with grandma

 Melody Ormond and her grandmother, 74-year-old Pat Ormand, just graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on the same day. "I always knew I would graduate from college," said Melody, "but I never knew my nana was also going to be there." Pat Ormond started her college career 42 years ago, but eventually moved, took up work as an accountant, and raised a family. Now she has a shiny new bachelor's degree in anthropology. 

The two Ormand ladies got to walk on stage at their socially distanced ceremony, one after the other.Pat Ormond may have taken the scenic route to her degree, but she has excellent advice for anyone else in her shoes. "Learning never stops."
