New degree at 93: Ohio engineer awarded diploma 30 years after last class


Robert Greathouse, 93, is all smiles Monday after receiving his associate of technical studies degree, 30 years after attending his last class to become the school's oldest graduate during a ceremony at the University of Akron College of Arts and Sciences.

Ohio resident Robert Greathouse hadn’t anticipated receiving a degree after his last University of Akron class 30 years ago.

It wasn’t part of the plan.

But there he was, Monday, in cap and gown, assembled with family and friends at the Buchtel College of Arts and Sciences.
