Marine surprises sister at high school graduation ceremony

GILBERT, Ariz. -

High school graduations are happening all across the valley. It's a big night for teens and their families. But it was extra special for a grad in Gilbert who received a special surprise.

A Marine flew home to surprise his little sister at her graduation. His father picked him up at the airport just this afternoon.

20-year-old Lance Corporal Evan Earlywine has been deployed overseas for about a year and a half.

"Taylor believes Evan was stuck in Japan and wasn't able to come home," said dad Kevin Earlywine.

"I was kind of worry she already knew cause it's hard to keep that a secret," said LCPL Evan.

His sister Taylor Earlywine had no idea he was coming home. Little did she know her brother would be presenting her with her diploma. When he did, there was a standing ovation. They shared a big hug.

"I was so surprised and shocked. I had no idea. As soon as I saw him, I was like oh my God," says Taylor.

Evan's younger sister was in the audience and also didn't know he was coming home. Earlywine's parents kept this secret for 5 months.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
