WAKEFIELD, England, April 30 (UPI) -- A British man with 11 university degrees, including a doctorate in philosophy, said he took a job as a school crossing guard to give back to the community.

Bruce Berry, a member of the high-IQ organization Mensa, said he took a job as a crossing guard five days a week near the Crofton School in Wakefield, England, The Sun reported Monday.

"I love working for degrees but wanted to do something for the community. It's nice to get kiddies to and from school safely," said Berry, who speaks five languages fluently.

Berry, who makes $325 per month at the job, said his father was a teacher at Crofton.

"I feel part of the family there," he said.
