Now this is amazing! Talk about teaching the world that it’s never too late to fulfill your dreams.

Reba McEntire‘s mom graduated high school when she was 16 and then went on to teach in Oklahoma for nearly 20 years. Despite those facts, Jacqueline McEntire never actually finished her degree.

Until last week!

According to ABC News Radio, Jacqueline, who is nearly 90, was joined by her kids, Reba, Alice, Pake, and Susie at Southeastern Oklahoma State University where she was presented with an Honorary Bachelor’s Degree in Public Education and Community Service.

Reba shared the news on Instagram, captioning the above picture: I love my family!!! Susie, Alice, Mama and Pake @_susiemcentire_ #toomuchfun

Awww. We love your family too, Reba!

Congratulations to Mama McEntire!

I love my family!!! Susie, Alice, Mama and Pake @_susiemcentire_ #toomuchfun
