Many graduation ceremonies look different in the time of COVID-19. But for Melody Ormond, it looked different because of the classmate who graduated alongside her: Her grandmother, 75-year-old Pat Ormond.
They both went to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga — and graduated together.
Pat told CBS News she had gone to college before, but only had a few credits under her belt. In 2017 she found herself retired and admittedly bored. That’s when Melody suggested she enroll in school.
