SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — A set of twins from Cincinnati accomplished one of the greatest things in life: graduating college.

Emma and Ashley Byrd were set to graduate on the same day at the same time, but from two different schools.

Ashley Byrd was set to graduate from Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky and Emma Byrd was set to graduate from Wittenberg University.

Ashley Byrd decided to miss her graduation ceremony to watch her twin's commencement.

However, the university had other plans for her.

Wittenberg University let Byrd participate in the ceremony with her twin so she wouldn't have to miss out on any of the activities.
