HUNTINGDON, Tenn. (AP) - As Jeanne Prince received her diploma from the University of Tennessee at Martin earlier this month, she recalls she couldn't help but notice "that look of pride" on her son's face.

Days later, it was her turn to show that pride as her son Richard Cody Prince graduated at UT's flagship campus in Knoxville.

The mother and son, both of Huntingdon, Tennessee, are members of the UT class of 2015.

For her, it's a degree in nursing. For him, it's a degree from the College Scholars program with an emphasis in science policy and administration and a second major in physics with an academic focus.
