CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - When Ellis Colvin's mother served on a federal grand jury when he was 5 years old, he knew what he wanted to be when he grew up.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that the 52-year-old Colvin reached his goal Saturday, graduating from the Charleston School of Law.

Colvin says after graduating from Wofford College in 1983, law school wasn't an option, in part because he was 1 of 10 children in his family. He spent the next 21 years in the Army and earned two master's degrees.

He was working for the federal government when a sister asked if he'd given up on his dream. Colvin said it was then that he decided to go for it.

Colvin said he plans to return to the Washington area.
