Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Helen Joan (Miller) Hunter was eight months pregnant – and three credits short of her degree – when she watched her husband graduate from Carolina in 1947. Sixty-six years later, more than a dozen family members will be on hand Sunday at Kenan Stadium to watch the 87-year-old great-grandmother earn her Bachelor of Arts diploma. (UNC.edu)
