Half a century after earning her degree from Limestone College, Elizabeth Farmer received her cap and gown on October 16.

Teresa Bratt, Upstate area coordinator for Limestone's Extended Campus program, presented Farmer with the cap and gown, a book on the history of Limestone College and other campus memorabilia.

Bratt aligned the tassel on the cap so it would sit on Farmer's right, the position that signifies graduation, prompting an accomplished smile from Farmer and kindling memories Farmer has made through nearly 10 decades as a pupil, teacher and retiree.
