NEWBURGH - Alvin Mann, a 92 year-old World War II veteran from Cuddebackville, is getting special recognition as the oldest person graduating from Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh.

He will be graduating with honors on Saturday, along with 600 other seniors.

The long-retired businessman started taking classes in 2013 to finish his bachelor's degree in history to occupy time.

Mann says he's not sure if he'll use his degree to go back to work but says he's still "young" enough to consider it.
