INDIANAPOLIS – A middle school student got a surprise message from his father who serves in the military.

Jaden Gibson attended his eighth grade graduation at Guion Creek Middle School Thursday with his family with one person missing from the audience - his father, who has been stationed in Hawaii.

During the ceremony, Sgt. Spencer Gibson’s face popped up on the screen to give his son a special message.

"You are truly, truly a blessing to have in my life,” said Sgt. Gibson to his son. “Everything I do, I do for you and your sisters.”
