A local man is proving it's never too late to get an education.
85-year-old Bill Tinsley received his diploma from Bixby High School Wednesday.
Tinsley says he could have easily requested a veteran's diploma for a while now but that wasn't for him.
"If i got something I wanted to learn it so I could earn it," says Tinsley. "I have a grandson who didn't finish high school and since I wanted to do this for a long time I thought, 'well I'll get my G.E.D. and maybe that'll encourage him to get his.'"
Tinsley said his grandson was inspired but he hasn't heard yet if he's taken him up on the challenge.
