Friday night was a big one for 78-year-old Ted Sams. After six decades, Sams finally received his high school diploma!

Sams got into some trouble in 1962, which prevented him from taking an important exam during his senior year of high school.

Once he completed the exam over the summer, he still could not graduate due to a book fee.

Sams finally got to put all of that behind him as he walked the stage with 2022’s graduating class at San Gabriel High School.
