Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A special student took the stage during graduation at Cal State San Marcos, the oldest graduate in the school's history.

90-year-old Wally Taibleson received his third master's degree Friday, this time in education.

Taibleson started his academic life late. He didn't start college until he was 70.

School officials say Taibleson is a great role model for other students because he epitomizes life-long learning.
