BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Louisiana State University Manship School of Mass Communication made sure one of its graduating seniors received a proper send-off Friday after school officials incorrectly identified him by another name during the school’s fall commencement ceremony.
Joshua Babin, now an LSU alumnus, reached out to the Manship school via Twitter, informing them school officials had incorrectly called him Joseph instead of Joshua as he crossed the stage to receive his degree. With his parents present for the big moment, the mistake was especially disappointing for Babin.
Recognizing Babin needed their help, officials at the Manship School organized a special celebration exclusively for Babin so he could redo the big moment and receive the proper recognition in front of his parents.
“This is one of the many reasons I love this school,” Babin wrote in a tweet. “Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and making my mom happy in the end.”
