Graduation marks a major accomplishment for most students.

But Thursday night, a Tulsa couple added another milestone to their cap at the Mabee Center.
Carmen McKay was receiving her degree from Clary Sage College when she was surprised by her boyfriend Christopher Hollands.

He dropped to one knee and popped the question.  Of course, she said yes!

Hollands was overjoyed to share this moment with thousands cheering them on.

“To be able to represent us, what I love about her to show it off to the world.. in front of other people,” Hollands said. “My love to her, I love her, that’s one I want to be with for the rest of my life.”

Hollands and McKay are both very excited for the road ahead.

She graduated with her cosmetology degree, which will come in handy when preparing for her big day.
