How awesome is this.
A father and his son both earned their undergraduate degrees together from historically black Claflin University in Orangeburg, South Carolina. According to Blavity, the duo motivated each other to finish what they started. Stanley Timmons and his son, Brandon Johnson, will receive diplomas in criminal justice and in computer science.
The two says they will cherish this moment forever. “Going back to school and seeing him study, making good grades, that pushed me to make good grades and to keep on moving so I can graduate,” Timmons said.
“It’s never too late to go back to school to get something,” Stanley, 40, said.
The work and pushing each other over the course of their time at the black college has paid off. Stanley and Brandon are both graduating with honors.
Congrats to the incredible father and son duo!
