NewsFeed doesn’t think it’s possible for her to be any cooler.
Throughout her career Betty White has been a back-stabbing homemaker, a ditzy Minnesotan and a saucy grandma–but in a ceremony yesterday, she realized a lifelong dream when she was made an “honorary forest ranger.”
The U.S. Forest Service bestowed the Emmy-winning actress with the title in a ceremony at The Kennedy Center in Washington. The 88-year-old star was given a badge and a ranger’s hat, and received a hug from Smokey Bear.
White said that when she was a little girl she wanted to be a forest ranger, but back then the position wasn’t open to women. ”In my heart I’ve been a forest ranger all my life, but now I’m official,” she said.
Seriously, how sweet is that? (via the Associated Press)
