Margaret Dunning, 102-Year Old 'Belle Of The Concours,' Going Back To College On Full Scholarship

Margaret Dunning is not like most 102-year-olds. The Plymouth, Mich., native is a celebrity of sorts within the antique car show circuit, where the still-active driver and "Belle of the Concours" displays her automotive baby: a gorgeous, cream-colored 1930 Packard 740 Roadster.
But the energetic centenarian is far from done yet. This week Dunning learned she had been given a full scholarship to return to school, nearly 80 years later, to finally earn her business degree.
“I’m having a big day, I’ll tell you,” Dunning said in an interview with Today.com. “Was it ever a complete surprise!”
Auto products manufacturer The FRAM Group decided to help send Dunning back to the University of Michigan's Stephen M. Ross School of Business after seeing a story about her lifetime devotion to cars, Today.com reports. Dunning will also get free auto parts for life, a nod to the fact that she still changes the spark plugs and oil on her cars.
