RAYMOND, MS -

A Hinds Community College graduate got a big surprise Friday morning leaving the crowd shocked and some in tears.

"How would you like to see your dad again?"

National Guardsman Huffton Conley returned from Afghanistan Thursday night.

He surprised his daughter, Kendra, just minutes before she graduated.

Conley has been deployed for the past year.

He's very proud of his daughter and glad that he could be there for her graduation.

Conley was met with applause and tears as he walked into the Cain-Cochran Hall on the Raymond Campus.

He spent last night with his wife and other children but did not tell Kendra that he was home.

She plans to continue her education at the University of Southern Mississippi.
