It’s a tradition here in North Carolina — two rivals coming together to hold graduation on Mother’s Day.

About 6,000 students walked across the stage at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Just a few miles down the street, Duke University also celebrated graduation on Mother’s Day with alumna Melinda Gates giving the commencement speech.
