ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Nearly 400 cap and gown-wearing students crossed the stage Wednesday night, happy to be part of Darton State College's last Spring commencement. 

Shikerra Monday earned her Associate's Degree in Health Science Diagnostic Medical Stenography. 

64-year-old Irvin Howard graduated with a certificate in visual communication. 

He said that there's no age limit on education. 

"If there's any other senior 62 or older sitting around on the benches you need to come out here and get educated," said Howard.

"It feels good. It feels great to be graduating, finally to be done," explained fellow Monday.

Howard will attend Georgia Southwestern in the Fall, and Monday is looking for a job in a hospital or in a doctor's office.
