PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — A Navy officer surprised her sister and cousin at their high school graduation in Palm Beach County on Wednesday.

Alexa Escobar and Hailey Johnson graduated from West Boca Raton Community High School.

Unbeknownst to them, their family member, Navy Petty Officer Third Class Skye Escobar, was waiting in the wings to surprise them on stage at Wednesday's graduation ceremony at the Palm Beach County Fairgrounds.


Escobar graduated from West Boca Raton Community High School in 2014 and enlisted in the Navy.

She recently came off a 10-month deployment and returned to her base in Washington state.

Escobar is now moving bases and going to California. In between the move, the Navy allowed her to come home to South Florida for this special surprise.
