It took him 60 years, but 96-year old Alfonso Gonzales received a Bachelor of Science degree in zoology from the University of Southern California. For years, Gonzales thought he had graduated. When relatives contacted the university to get a copy of Gonzales’ diploma, they found that he was one unit short of completing the degree. Even though the school no longer offers a degree in zoology, they put together an independent study program to help Gonzales complete the degree. When he received his diploma at the age of 96, Gonzales became the oldest graduate in USC’s history. School officials called Gonzales a “wonderful inspiration.” –Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
