On Saturday, DeEbony’s mother, Shirl Baker, received a standing ovation when she walked across the stage at Belmont University’s commencement to receive her daughter’s diploma.

Belmont President Robert Fisher told the commencement crowd that “while our hearts were broken, today we have the chance to celebrate DeEbony’s life together.”

DeEbony’s brother, Di’Angelo Groves, also received his diploma Saturday and was overcome with emotion when university officials announced a social work scholarship in his sister’s honor.
