Mother, daughter graduate from UNC Charlotte together

- Going back to school after having kids isn't easy.

Candace Yow and her daughter Samantha Whitley walked on stage at UNC Charlotte's Halton Arena today to receive their bachelors degree.

Yow was working full-time at Novant health Presbyterian as a Pediatric and Neonatal Respiratory Therapist with 3 kids.

She wasn't sure if she wanted to continue with her education but as her daughter started looking at colleges, Yow thought it would be fun if they could both walk together and now it's a reality.

They are both excited about finishing together but that's not where their joint paths end. They both will be working together at Levine Children's hospital in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit.
