CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Be all that you can be may belong to the Army, but a U.S. Navy veteran brought that slogan to life on Saturday.

Bill Nave, 81, received his master's in Biblical Studies from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Charlotte. It s an extension of the school s main campus in Massachusetts.

Nave finished his bachelor degree at the University of Chattanooga in 1963. This is his second graduate degree, his MBA coming from East Tennessee State University.

I wanted to keep myself active, he said.

Nave currently lives in Monroe. His wife teaches at Wingate University.
