Getting a four year college degree wasn't nearly enough for one California man and neither was graduate school.

In fact, this man now has a variety of college degrees.

It's the day every college student dreams of...graduation.

But for one San Marcos student, it's not his first time, or his second, or his third. It's his fourth.

At 90 years old, Wally Taibleson is the oldest graduate in the California State University System and yesterday afternoon he earned fourth degree from the school.

Taibleson has a bachelors degree in history, a masters in literature and writing studies, a masters in history, and now a masters in education.

And he believes there's always room to learn more.

"Any time you can devote to improving your mind and increasing your learning is valuable for you as well as those you're associated with," said Taibleson.

This is likely the last time Wally will attend graduation as a student, he is currently fighting macular degeneration and now dreams of becoming a mentor to others. He wants to open their eyes to the importance of education.
