BANGOR – Close friends and family gathered at Husson university to celebrate the 103rd birthday of Clara Swan.
Clara has quite the resume, the valedictorian of the Brewer high school class of 1930, she went on to attend the Maine School of Commerce, which eventually became Husson University, she taught there as well!
Touching the lives of many students, including governor Paul Lepage who was in attendance at today’s event.
In between an onslaught of well wishers on her big day, we did get a chance to ask Clara, how does 103 feel? “It feels pretty funny today, i was driving, i thought i better stop.”
Still sharp as a tack with a sense of humor to boot. Today’s event was held in the lobby of the Gracie Theatre on Husson’s Bangor campus.
