“You have to have goals in life, and this was mine.”
-Pauline Boerman (aka Cookie Pekovitch)
Pauline graduated with her high school degree in 2001 shortly before her 61st birthday, becoming the first and only sibling in her family to do so. She lives in Moweaqua next to the house where her parents raised 11 kids, close to the coal mine where her dad and brothers worked. She told me that having goals in life gives you something to live for, and I couldn’t agree with her more.
