GOOSE CREEK, South Carolina (WKOW) -- A high school senior was shocked when his father, who had been overseas, flew in for the ceremony.

Our CNN affiliate, WCIV, says Nicolas Schott was one of Goose Creek High School's speakers.  He talked about his father and the importance of military families.  He thought his father was overseas, but turns out, he was right there.  He waited for him in the wings of the coliseum, waiting for his son to walk across the stage.

"I had no idea. They kept it so much a secret from me," says Nicolas.  His father, Staff Sergeant Schott has done five tours of duty overseas.  Though he had to miss a lot of moments, he was there for Nicolas's big day.
