DAVIE, Fla. (SBG) — A Florida high school graduate received much more than a diploma when she took the stage Sunday.

Kayla Tillman had a surprise reunion with her father, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Anthony Tillman, who had been deployed in Korea. A video posted by her high school, St. Thomas Aquinas High School, shows the moment her graduating class and crowd erupts into applause when she gets to hug him.

Local media reports that Sgt. Tillman and Kayla hadn't seen each other in 10 years.
