The Cal Poly student who police say took his own life last year received an honorary degree Friday.
Twenty-year-old Charles Tamae went missing in December of 2009.
Student searchers found his body on Cerro San Luis just a few days later.
On Friday the College of Architecture awarded Tamae a posthumous degree in Landscape Architecture, something his parents were more than happy to accept.
"I'm really sad because physically he don't pick up the degree, but right after this I'm going to take this certificate to the cemetery to show how proud he is," said Paul Tamae, Charles' Father.
The college also presented Tamae's parents with framed samples of their son's work.
