88-year-old retired pastor fulfills collegiate goal

ROME, Ga. (BP) -- As Shorter University's class of 2017 walked across the stage to receive their diplomas, one graduate received a standing ovation for his long journey. Horace Sheffield, now 88, first enrolled at Shorter in 1961 and left with 115 credit hours because his own daughters were soon to enter college. "I didn't care about having a diploma back then, but I'm getting my degree this time," the retired pastor said.
