ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  One author wants to get the word out that people can receive a college degree not matter what their age is.

Author and teacher Annie Flood held a book signing Saturday. She writes about how she attended college more than 30 years after she graduated from high school.

She had to provide for her children and save money for college at the same time. She says the outcome was worth the challenge.

"Going through what I went through was one of the most inspiring things in the world because most people couldn't do it," Flood said.

Flood who is 67 years old earned her Master's Degrees from ASU in 2008.
