Mom Receives College Diploma at Son’s Graduation

Sharonda Wilson, a graduating senior at Ferris State University, decided to forgo her own graduation ceremonies last Saturday. Why? She decided to attend her son’s graduation at Central Michigan University. Little did she know that the presidents of Ferris State University and Central Michigan University talked earlier in the day on Saturday. They decided that CMU president would surprise her by conferring her degree right along side her son. Both mom and son received their degrees at the same time in the same location.

Joe’s perspective: What can you say, this is a pretty cool story. First, two university presidents cared enough to make this moment happen. Second, one day before Mother’s Day, mother and son got to share this special moment. Son, Stephan summed the moment up with the following quote: “When I heard (she) was getting her degree with me I was speechless. My mother is truly the strongest and most compassionate woman I know. That moment tops (any) other moment I have ever shared with my mother.”

  1. My thoughts after I learned about this story is that age doesn’t matter at all and that you can do anything when you try and put you mind in it. This is a happily ever after story.

  2. My thoughts after i learned about this story that you shouldn’t care about age or anything you should follow your dreams and continue doing what you love.For example, like in the video it shows a mother and her son graduating together. You can see that the son was unbothered by his mother graduating because for some people it can seem pretty embarrassing but he was happy for her and cheering her on.
