Octogenarian Receives Degree

Fifty-four years after he had last set foot on the Richmond campus, 85-year-old Florida businessman Roy Davidson received a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Kentucky University at spring commencement ceremonies on May 11, 2018. Because of a personal tragedy, Mr. Davidson left Eastern Kentucky State College in 1964 just a few credit hours short of graduation. It turned out that, by current standards, he had accumulated enough hours for a general studies in business degree.
