With schools around the country canceling their plans for graduation ceremonies due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, students are finding new and creative ways to celebrate their diplomas. 

Not that it's a competition, but it may be hard to top what one woman did for her boyfriend on the day he graduated after she connected him with Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant on Instagram:

"Yo, your girl loves you, dawg," Durant said at the beginning of the video. "You got you a good one. ... I'm just showing love, man. Congrats, bro." 

The stunned look on his face says it all. It may have been just a small moment in Durant's day, but it'll forever be a moment that brings a smile to the graduate's face.
