NONTHABURI, Thailand, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- An 88-year-old man affectionately known as Grandfather by those who know him says he is pleased to have earned a law degree in Thailand.
The Bangkok Post said Monday that Sa-nguan Sunthornwong graduated from Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University with a degree in law after 12 years of classes.
But Sunthornwong insists he has no plans to rest following his recent private graduation ceremony.
"It's not over," the senior law school graduate said. "I will continue studying until the end of my days."
Sunthornwong's determination comes despite the fact the university's oldest graduate was forced to miss the Jan. 23 graduation ceremony for his graduating class.
The 88-year-old had been unable to walk or speak, forcing him to be hospitalized for 39 days.
Nonetheless, Sunthornwong told the Post he is now considering obtaining a master's degree to go with his law degree.
