An ex-army man from Pennsylvania got his high school diploma at the age of 91. Pete Sabedra, world war II hero, completed his high school diploma after eight decades. Sabedra and his brother could not keep continuing their study at that time due to their poor financial situations.
Earlier, Sabedra had attended the school in 1940, but he left the school after his father’s death and started working with his brother on railway lines. During World War II, he and his brother came into the eyes of U.S. military’s officials and they joined the U.S. Army.
When the U.S. pushed itself into world war II, both the brothers were sent to Germany. After the completion of the war, both the brothers returned safely and Sabedra once again started working on railway lines. After 30 years of service, he got retired from his duties in 1985.
He joined his school again and got his high school diploma on Wednesday at a ceremony.
Sabedra’s grandson, Kace is also going to be graduated on 31 May.
Kace told media, “It’s a cool experience, who plans to attend Thiel College in the fall. It means a lot, considering we’re graduating at the same time, almost”.
