Jada Sayles was looking forward to attending her college graduation ceremony at Dillard University in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Saturday, when she went into labour. Hours before the ceremony, Sayles had to be rushed to the hospital. However, her kind University president made sure that Sayles did not have to lose out on one of the most memorable moments of her life. A tweet shared by Dr Walter M Kimbrough, the current president of the historically Black university, narrates how the institute decided to surprise Sayles.

Sharing the video on Twitter, Kimbrough tweeted, “Jada went into labour on Friday evening. Texted me around 4:30 am Saturday saying she was being admitted, and the baby was born on her graduation day, May 14th. So we rolled up to the hospital so I could finish my tenure in the most special way.”
