A Tampa grandmother is celebrating a personal milestone -- graduating from college.

Debra Morris, 60, will graduate from Hillsborough Community College on May 5. It's an accomplishment four decades in the making.
 
Like many in her generation, Morris didn't go straight to college after high school. She enrolled in a technical school, she got a job and then raised a family instead.
 
But four years ago, Morris decided to go to Hillsborough Community College for an associate degree. She said she did it for her grandchildren.
