Famous for portraying Principal Belding on the TV show "Saved by the Bell," Dennis Haskins has earned a Bachelors degree in theater at the age of 65.   

Haskins was among the graduates honored at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's 246th commencement ceremony on Saturday. 

“As successful as some have said I've been, from the incredible success of ‘Saved by the Bell,’ other quality acting roles, the books I've written, and even UTC Distinguished Alumni in 2000, there's always been something missing for me—my college degree,” said Haskins.
