VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - A Sentara Norfolk General Hospital employee who has spent the last 20 years giving local college graduates a "final look" at themselves before walking across the stage has gone viral.

Someone named Emily Beth posted a five-second TikTok of Harrison Kramer walking through the lineup of Regent University graduates while holding a mirror, and Kramer's sweet gesture instantly went viral - it got 2.5 million views in 48 hours!

Kramer, who works on a trauma floor at Sentara Norfolk and received his master's degree in business administration from Regent, has been doing this for the last two decades - not as a parent, but as a volunteer.
