Irrepressible nonagenarian wins honorary doctorate
At 93 years old, Gloria Hobbs is continually looking for ways to give back to her Bronx community. Hobbs is the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from the Department of Foreign Languages at the University of Texas. She knows six languages, housed The Freedom Riders, and sailed around the world on a cargo ship. Ithaca College recently recognized Gloria with an honorary doctor of letters degree.
