Greensboro, NC -- It's never too late to fulfill your dreams, and we had a great example on the Good Morning Show Friday.

Eldred Hopkins is almost 60-years-old, a cancer survivor, and is graduating from North Carolina A&T University Saturday, May 12th.

Hopkins will be graduating with a degree in Social Work. We asked him what made him decide to go back, he said, "I was at home doing nothing, and I thought, a mind is a terrible thing to lose."

Hopkins, goes on to say, "Anybody can go back if they put their mind to it, and stop listening to people, because people will always keep you from moving to the top. I always tell people, when you got it, can't nobody take it from you."
