Not only is it Mother's Day weekend, it's also graduation weekend for thousands of college students in Middle Tennessee.

Middle Tennessee State University and Trevecca Nazarene University were just a couple of the schools holding commencement ceremonies this weekend.

A mom and daughter from Smyrna were celebrating both occasions this weekend.

Barbara Adkerson and her daughter, Amber Morton, both earned master's degrees from MTSU and graduated together.

Mother and daughter said attending school together has helped to strengthen their bond.

More than 9,000 people graduated from MTSU this weekend.
