THE GRADUATE: Boyfriend pops the question after girlfriend receives her diploma

Graduation proposal

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTVR) – Some college graduates are lucky enough to consider job offers upon graduation, but this American University student had an entirely different proposal to laid out in front of her… on stage… during graduation.

Graduate Sarah Cooper was surprised by a marriage proposal from her boyfriend, a fellow graduate, Sam Miller, according to an American University post on YouTube.,

“I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Sarah about three months into our relationship,” Miller said in an email to NBC 4 in Washington, D.C. “One day I looked at her and saw not only a girlfriend, but a best friend, wife and mother. As our families grew closer and our relationship more serious, both sides strongly suggested that we wait until after we receive our diplomas to get engaged. That being said, I chose to propose on stage at her graduation because I don’t want to wait another minute for her to be my fiancee.”
