Among the students at Tuesday’s graduation ceremony for Brooklyn’s Kingsborough Community College was a classmate who’s already had several decades of real-world experience.
Joseph Pinsky, 85, donned a cap and gown as he received his associate’s degree this week after 10 years at the school, reports CBS New York.
A retired grandfather, Pinsky says it was actually his wife, Rosalind, who encouraged him (in a roundabout way) to pursue a college degree.
