After a 25-year hiatus, the oldest Joyner decided to continue his education at Morehouse when his son was a freshman.

Dorian Jr said he and his father used each other as “a support system.”

“Sometimes [my dad] would come to my room to ask about a problem or a class or a professor to take,” he said during an interview with Atlanta 11.

The graduation ceremony, which will include a commencement from President Barack Obama, will be held on Sunday, May 19.

What a proud moment this must be for both of them.
