Never too late
May 18th, 2009
Vice President Biden added a nice touch to his speech when he mentioned several graduates by name, including NFL draftee Aaron Curry. Biden also mentioned Fred Hastings (above), who first started college at Wake Forest 54 years ago. He left to joint he Army just one course short of earning his degree. His son, Victor, graduated from Wake Forest in 1982. Last year, he worked out a plan with business school administrators to complete the remaining accounting course at a college near his home in Florida and transfer the credit. He is receiving his diploma just three days before his 77th birthday.
