The 6-year-old received a hug from her father, Timothy, a surprise guest who made it back from a U.S. Army deployment to South Korea.
Timothy is a 1998 graduate of Tracy High who serves in the Army as a sergeant with the military police. He returned from his most recent deployment just in time to watch his daughter graduate with the rest of her classmates.
As the ceremony started, New Jerusalem School Principal Steve Payne announced that Johnson was in the room. Brooklyn cried and got a hug from her father before the ceremony continued.
