Hollywood actor handed the document 31 years after graduation.
It is customary to say that it is never too late to study, but in the case of Matthew McConaughey it is more correct to say that it is never too late to receive your certificate. For this, on May 17, the actor came to a graduation school in Longview, Texas, the Longview News-Journal reported. At the Lobo Stadium, where the ceremony was held, McConaughey came with his children : the middle daughter Vida (9 years old) and the youngest son Livingstone (6 years old).
He also delivered a short speech to the graduates of 2019:
31 years ago, I was the same as you, a graduate of the Longview School. The most important reason for my success — and I believe that it will also cause you to succeed — is a heart that is never sold, to which we give ourselves and defend ourselves throughout life. Follow your heart.
When McConaughey presented the certificate, he commented on it in one word:

School representative Elizabeth Ross said that at such ceremonies students do not receive the original diplomas. For these certificates you need to come then separately to the leadership of the school. This, it turns out, Matthew McConaughe never did.
