Two men in their 70s to graduate from UH


This weekend, thousands of students are graduating from the University of Houston, but two stand out more than most. Robert Lincoln Straight and Stephen Doiron are the oldest graduates at the University of Houston's College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.

Just how old are they? Both are in their seventies, but tell us getting their degrees have made them feel more like the typical 22-year-olds who will also graduate.

Straight is an artist and Doiron is getting his Bachelor of Arts in English.
