Selma Graduate Gets Special Message From U.S. Army Father Overseas


Its graduation time for high school seniors all across the valley. But for one Selma High School student it was extra special, thanks to a message from his father all thanks to You-Tube.

Raul Juarez says, "Nicholas I know that it has not been easy being a military brat and having to move every 2 to 3 years but you've mastered it."

U.S. Army Solider Raul Juarez is currently serving overseas in Afghanistan and couldn't make it to his son's graduation. So he did the next best thing, he sent a message.

Juarez says, "Nick I am truly proud of you. The sky is the limit! You can do anything you put your mind too. Just know that your mom and I will be there every step of the way. Take care and cherish this moment because you only graduate from high school once. As you sit there and wait for your name to be called and when you walk across that stage just know that I'm am there with you."

After watching the video, Nick says, "I'm at a loss for words."

Congrats Nick and the rest of the 2014 Selma Bear graduates!
