A 95-year-old South Carolina woman is headed back to school after a short-lived retirement from her position as a crossing guard.

Estella Williams, 95, returned to her job at Westside High School in Anderson County, South Carolina after hanging up her cross guard gear in March following 27 years of service, WYFF News 4 reports.

According to Live 5 News, Anderson School District was in need of more cross guards, and Williams quickly answered the call.

“I just love it,” Williams told Live 5 News. “I try to do the people right. I don’t let them stay too long. I try to give everybody a chance.”

When Williams arrived at crossing guard orientation, she received a standing ovation from the community.

"They were happy to see me come in," Williams told WYFF News 4 following orientation.

The 95-year-old said she had been volunteering for Meals on Wheels and the Veterans Hospital during her short retirement, but it "wasn't enough."

"I just got bored," she told the outlet.

Williams is seen as a staple in the community because of her dedication to her role, and her old crossing guard gear was even put in the Anderson Museum.

The 95-year-old crossing guard said she was given new gear at the orientation.
