HAMMOND - A very special graduate got the privilege to walk across the stage at Southeastern University's commencement Friday. 

Kenneth Colona graduated with a degree in sociology at 85 years old. He was originally enrolled at the university in the 1950s but left to serve with the Marines full-time. 

Colona returned to campus in 2010 at the age of 73 to complete his degree.

He received a standing ovation during the ceremony.
