Mom Skipped Her Own Graduation to Go to Her Son’s, and They Ended Up Graduating Together
This is a good reminder of all the times your mom put you ahead of herself...
A mom in Michigan named Sharonda Wilson has been trying to get her bachelor's degree at Ferris State University, and just graduated.
Meanwhile, her son Stephan also just graduated from Central Michigan. And both of their commencement ceremonies were this past Saturday at different schools.
So Sharonda could only go to one, and she chose to see her son graduate.
Now here's the good part: Somehow, the president of CMU found out about it right before the ceremony. And he got on the phone with the president at Ferris State.
Then in the middle of Stephan's graduation, the president of CMU surprised them by presenting both of them with their degrees. So they got to graduate together.
He gave Sharonda her own cap, awarded her degree on behalf of FSU, and asked her to please move her tassel to the left side of her cap.
