Martin graduate determined to earn a college degree fulfills her dream decades later

Yvette Robinson, 54, will receive her diploma from Martin University Saturday, but her college journey isn't done yet.

It's a day Yvette Robinson has dreamed about for a long time - the day she earns a college degree.

Nearly 40 years in the making, that day arrives Saturday, May 15.

"I'm ecstatic. This is long overdue and bittersweet," Robinson said.

Robinson will graduate from Martin University with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. It's a four-year degree she earned in just two years while maintaining a 4.0 GPA - and at age 54.
