Military Spouse Graduation Surprise 2019

One lucky graduate has two big dates on the calendar for this month: her graduation and her due date. Her husband made a surprise visit home for both.

Savannah Technical College Cosmetology graduate Yadimar Otero thought the walk across the stage would be the just the beginning of her new career, but her husband’s surprise celebrates another beginning.

Otero was one of 265 graduates celebrated at the College’s 2019 Commencement ceremony. Savannah Tech has awarded more than 400 degrees and diplomas for students that completed coursework from fall 2018 through spring 2019. Also, more than 460 GED diplomas have been earned during that time. 

Savannah Tech has been named the #1 Best for Vets in the U.S. for public technical and career colleges for the past three years. One in four STC students is a veteran, active duty service member or a military dependent/spouse.
