FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) — As college graduates miss in-person commencement ceremonies, one Purdue graduate got a surprise that she’ll never forget.
Cars paraded through Natalie Murdock’s neighborhood with family, friends and even some of her mentors inside. The participants showed signs and honked their horns.
“People going the extra mile just to still celebrate me means just a whole lot,” said Murdock. “It takes it to a whole other level and I think it just reminds me just how much my village truly loves me.”
Murdock is currently helping out the health department as a contact tracer.
She plans to continue studying at Purdue to get her master’s degree and eventually wants to get her PhD.
