Father, son graduate from college together

Sherwood Brown Jr. and his father Sherwood Brown Sr. graduated from college Saturday — together.

The father and son each received their degrees from Florida A&M University’s School of Business and Industry, according to a news release from the university’s official website.  Sherwood Jr. entered FAMU in 2008 with his eyes set on a career in the music industry. He took classes in FAMU’s Department of Music and courses on the “business of music” in SBI.

Sherwood’s father graduated from FAMU with a bachelor’s degree more than 20 years ago. He made a promise to himself to return to FAMU and complete a Masters in Business Administration, which he finally did this past weekend.

Sharing the stage was a coincidence, the duo tells the university’s official website:

“It was not planned,” said Sherwood Jr. “We just looked up one day and realized that we would both be graduating at the same time.”

The elder Brown wanted to be an “example to his children” on the importance of “never giving up on your goals.”

The Brown family mantra is: “If you start something, finish it.” On Saturday, they finished their education together.
