SPRING TWP., Pa. - Graduation will be a family affair for a man and his daughter as they turn their tassels at Penn State Berks.

Mark Dawson and his daughter, MacKenzy, were set to graduate Friday night.

His daughter will earn a bachelor's in business with a minor in entrepreneurship.

They've been taking courses and studying together since last fall.

"We're finishing, I'm finishing in 2013 with MacKenzy. She's been one of my inspirations, as well as her five sisters," said Mark.

"I loved it. I thought it was the greatest thing, so I was excited he was in a lot of my different classes," MacKenzy said.

Mark said he plans to pursue a bachelor's degree in business. MacKenzy said she's looking at law schools.
