A college student who had her diploma ceremony stripped away because of the coronavirus got creative on behalf of his grandmother -- and a UPS driver was happy to help.
The at-home, impromptu graduation ceremony went down last week in Virginia, where the girl says she waited for her diploma to arrive from her school -- James Madison University -- via snail mail, but while waiting ... she got dressed up in her cap and gown.
And, get this ... it was for her granny, who wanted to see her granddaughter graduate and walk. Awwwwww!!!!
Anyway, it's unclear if the UPS driver who eventually showed up to deliver the goods was in on what was happening, but he was a good sport and handed the kid her diploma. It started out from a safe distance, but they eventually did appear to get closer than 6 feet.
At any rate, the makeshift grad celebration isn't all that uncommon right now among college students -- seeing how pretty much all of their spring semesters were scrapped outright amid the pandemic. No more school activities for a while, and that means stuff like this.
Good to see she took matters into her own hands and got creative. Lifts the spirits, don't it?
