Western Kentucky University hosted three graduation ceremonies today to celebrate the achievements of the Spring Class of 2017.

Among those students receiving their diploma today, is 70-year-old Robert Ward.

He says after getting his two-year Associates degree in 1966, earning his undergraduate had always been something he wanted to accomplish.

"That two year degree is just hanging on the wall maybe it needs something to go along with it," says Ward while explaining what made him want to go back to school after so many years.

"So I decided to go back to school, and I've always loved history so I just went back".

Ward says he has feeling of achievement and accomplishment that he been wanting.
