AIR DATE: August 5, 2010

Eunie May Gray always wanted to finish her high school education. And she did just that... at the tender age of 90. Nicknamed "Faye," she looks back on her life as a sharecropper's daughter during the Great Depression, and what it was like to take a seat next to teenagers young enough to be her great-grandchildren. Faye Gray reflects back on her life, her education, and why she's proof that you're never too young to pursue your dreams. Her family is hosting a gala in her honor on Saturday, August 7 at the Red Rock Country Club at 6:30 p.m.

GUEST
Eunie May Gray ("Faye"), 92 year old high school graduate, and author, Faye: A Biography
