"We have to be true to ourselves and it was something I wanted to do and if persevering gives someone else encouragement, I'm all for it," says Rollings.
Rollings is all smiles now, but take into account the many setbacks she's endured along the way: losing a scholarship, making bad grades, financial burdens and dropping out of school to take care of her family: it all slowed her down, but it didn't stop her. Rollings says that little spark inside of her got her through the tough times. Now tomorrow, when she turns her tassel - nurse, grandmother, and graduate - it's on to new horizons.
"I'm just ready for whatever the world has for me and I just need to take advantage of it and enjoy it," says Rollings. "That's what I'm doing right now. Enjoying this moment."
So, what's next for Frances Rollings? Right now she's working at St. Thomas as a Registered Nurse, and is now thinking about pursuing her Master's Degree.
