UMaine Awards Howard Reiche, Jr. Master of Professional Studies Degree in Biochemistry After 60-Plus Years

On Tuesday, October 7th, The University of Maine awarded Howard Reiche, Jr. a Master of Professional Studies in Biochemistry after more than 60 years. 85-year old Reiche found out after finishing all of the work for the master's that he needed just one more undergraduate prerequisite course in order to complete the degree in the early 1950's.  “At the time, I was 21, married, with no money and the draft hanging over my head,” says Reiche. “Spending another year at UMaine to take one undergraduate course was out of the question. But it’s been on my bucket list all this time.”
