It was an emotional homecoming for one area soldier.

Army Sergeant Ryleigh Carr of Rochester was not supposed to be back from her tour until August, but she made a surprise appearance at Ball State University’s summer commencement for her sister.

Carr says she purchased her tickets about two months ago hoping that everything would go as planned. She said that a few strings were pulled to get her home for the ceremony.

Carr’s parents did not know that she would be at the ceremony. In fact, they were expecting to Facetime her when their daughter took the stage.
