Ronald Gilroy is a 90-year-old World War II veteran who finally received his high school diploma on Wednesday night.
It was at Carbondale Area High School that Gilroy walked the stage with the graduating class.
As the principal handed off his diploma, Gilroy was celebrated for his educational achievement as well as the wonderful service to our country.
It was Gilroy's dream to receive his high school diploma. He was unable to finish because he dropped out at the age of 17 to serve in WWII.
His children and grandchildren wept with joy as Gilroy received his diploma.
