FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — 94-year-old Beulah Hester was awarded an honorary diploma during Kentucky School for the Deaf’s graduation ceremony Friday.

Hester attended KSD from 1937 to 1948, but left her senior year to start a family. She was then employed by the school as a dorm houseparent for 30 years until she retired in 1990.

She was one of four students to walk the stage this year as the campus celebrates its 200th anniversary.
