DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota woman has earned her GED more than 50 years after dropping out of high school to help in her family’s farm.

WDAZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1DzxfgM ) reports Katherine Schuler left school when she was in 10th grade in 1959. She spent the next 50 years raising four children and working various jobs.

Schuler says she drew inspiration from her 14 grandchildren and reached out to the adult learning center at Lake Region State College last October to start studying for the GED.

She passed the reading and social studies tests quickly, and last month, she passed the math test.

April Duchscher with the school’s adult learning center says Schuler is a role model for the community.

Schuler says she wanted her grandchildren to see how much she wanted an education.
