Diploma arrives decades later for Super Senior

Posted: Updated:
WELLS RIVER, Vt. -

An honor for a man we profiled as a Super Senior.

Charlie Gadwah delivers oil in the Connecticut River Valley. For 57 years, he's worked five or six days a week. He has family and friends. But he told Reporter Joe Carroll his biggest regret was that he never got his high school diploma.

Well, that just changed. His family petitioned Veterans Affairs, and because Charlie was away serving in World War II between 1941 and 1945, he automatically gets a real diploma.

Congratulations, Charlie!
