THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A south Georgia university is breaking a graduation record.

335 students will walk across the stage Saturday morning at Thomas University.

That's close to 100 more than last year.

No one is more excited than future Social Worker Keith Thomas who returned to school for the first time in 38 years.

"To achieve this goal, well at my age being a non-traditional student, I received the ASW South Georgia Chapter Student of the Year. I received the Thomas University Social Work Student of the Year. It's been real challenging. One of the proudest moments of my life."

The commencement begins at 9:00AM Saturday in the new West Campus Gymnasium.

TU will present associate, bachelor's, and master's degrees to graduating students.
