The 88-year-old TV veteran has been made an honorary forest ranger by U.S. officials on Tuesday, November 9.

Beloved TV veteran has an odd new accolade to add to her list of achievements - she's been made an honorary forest ranger by U.S. officials. The former "Golden Girls" star, 88, wanted to enter the profession as a young girl but her hopes were dashed when she learned women were then banned from the job.

However, she can now live out her childhood dreams after bosses at the U.S. Forest Service bestowed her with the special honor on Tuesday, November 9. The Forest Service's work force is now made up of 38 per cent women.

"Wilderness is harder and harder to find these days on this beautiful planet, and we're abusing our planet to the point of almost no return," White said as quoted by Associated Press. "In my heart I've been a forest ranger all my life, but now I'm official."
