A student from Chile, cried uncontrollable after parents refused to show up during his award ceremony. Jeric R. Rivas, who graduated with a diploma in Bachelor of Science in Criminology, received his accolade in tears. This time, not tears of joy.
The heartbroken graduate broke down as he received his diploma in Bachelor of Science in Criminology as Criminology Service Awardee at La Concepcion College San Jose del Monte Bulacan.
As reported by a Journalist:
The young man could not hold back his tears when his name was called as he looked around, hoping to spot his parents, who were a no-show at the Philippine International Convention Canter. One of his professors, who has been hosting him during his tenure at the university, walked with him to the stage to offer moral support. “One of my other professors was standing there on stage waiting for me and gave me a hug. While that moment took some of my sadness away, I still ended up crying in front of everyone,”.
