105-year-old Oakdale woman receives high school diploma

Oakdale, PA — Oakdale resident Theresa Brandl, 105, has always regretted never graduating from high school. She attended Stowe Township High School but dropped out before graduating in order to help care for her family.

Stowe Township High merged with McKees Rocks High School in 1996 to form Sto-Rox High School.


Now, thanks to the Allegheny County chapter of national nonprofit Twilight Wish Foundation, Brandl had her wish to receive her high school diploma granted.

Brandl was presented with a honorary diploma from Sto-Rox during a graduation ceremony in her nursing facility, complete with cap and gown, on Wednesday, May 17.
