RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Proud military parents and other relatives deployed around the world will get a chance to see graduates walking in their caps and gowns through live Internet connections provided by North Carolina school systems.

In Cumberland County, home of Fort Bragg, some 3,200 graduates from 10 high schools will appear in live streaming video as they receive their diplomas June 9 or 10 at Cumberland County Crown Coliseum.

Craven County, home of Cherry Point Marine Air Station, will air June 11 graduation ceremonies for deployed relatives of students from Havelock, West Craven and New Bern high schools.

Cumberland County schools spokeswoman Theresa Perry says the service is provided to accommodate military families in the community, but out-of-town or ill relatives also benefit from the Internet viewing option.
