Mother daughter duo to walk in USM graduation together

Posted: Updated:

A mother daughter duo will be walking together at The University of Southern Mississippi's graduation ceremony.

Tracy McKay and her daughter Amanda McKay, both receiving degrees in tourism management, both say this milestone is something they've both worked towards for years.

Amanda is 8 months pregnant, lives in Picayune, works 30 hours a week as a waitress, and travels to class at USM 3 days a week to receive an education. "My mother taught me one phrase as a child," McKay said. "You can't change the things that happen to you, but you can change the way you respond to them."
