A retired Tulsa schoolteacher celebrated her ninetieth birthday this week with a lot of class.

Mary White retired from teaching kindergarten nearly thirty years ago. Monday she was joined by many of her former students from as far back as 1934.

White's always been active, she was a competitive ballroom dancer when she was in her 60s. She says she's not about to let her age slow her down now. "I want all the credit I can get because I'll never be this much again. So I want today to live it up!"

And live it up she does. The birthday girl says she stays in shape with workouts with a personal trainer three times a week.
