Family holds a medical school graduation ceremony in their living room


One family found a way to celebrate their son’s graduation from medical school by live streaming a party in their living room. Trent Johnson Jr. recently graduated from the Ohio State University College of Medicine. With the coronavirus pandemic canceling every event the family got creative with a way to celebrate him.

"I was in shock... I actually went into my room, and I cried," Johnson told the station, adding that he is the first man in his family to graduate, and the first person in the family with a medical doctorate degree.

His family ordered “2020” balloons, confetti, noisemakers and other party supplies to have the ceremony in their home.

“Excuse me as I walk across this living room. My parents are sounding off 50 million sirens because this degree is theirs as well,” Johnson wrote on Twitter.
