It's a big moment for any senior, graduating from high school.
But for Apple Valley senior Kristine Schlingmann, the diploma came with a very big surprise.
Her brother, Jim, on leave from the Navy, surprised her with her diploma.
Jim, a 2006 graduate of Apple Valley, spent the last three years in Italy. He last saw Kristine and the family, last summer.
The Schlingmann family happy to be together for this graduation.
