OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — For many around the area, the second full week of December was graduation. Two graduates from Nebraska Methodist College have a special bond that's now even stronger.

Lisa and Cassandra Kessler are mother and daughter. Both graduated with honors from Nebraska Methodist College. Both say there were inspired to go into nursing while taking care of Lisa's father as he battled cancer.

Lisa says her father convinced her to try before his death.

The Kesslers carpooled and even had classes together during their path to graduation.
