85-Year-Old Dude Recieves His Degree After 66 Years

“An 85-year-old Welsh man received his diploma after a 66-year hiatus from college, officials say.
Harold Jones formally received his Cardiff University diploma Monday after having missed his 1945 graduation due to World War II, the BBC reported.”


I’m thrilled that the Welsh gentleman was able to receive his college diploma before his death certificate was issued.

At 85-freaking-years-old it won’t be long before Jones goes to the Great Big Graduate School in the Sky.

Jones has had a successful career in engineering, but finally he can hang his diploma on the wall.

I hope Jones’ eight grandchildren follow his example, and get a college degree.
