SALEM, Va. -

Graduation Day is meant to celebrate the students and their achievements.

One man is making sure families can celebrate even if they're far away.

Friday was graduation day for Roanoke County Public Schools.   Making sure you can watch graduation from anywhere; Community Relations Head Chuck Lionberger.

His Graduation Live! stream is in its fourth year and has won several national awards from Public Relations organizations.

Lionberger says it's a lot of work, but it's worth it to let friends and family from all over be just a click away.

"For us to be able to bring them to graduation so they can participate in a really big moment in a students life, you only get to graduate once.  So for them to be able to participate in that moment, that's really worth a lot," Lionberger said.

Lionberger says people have watched all the way from Iraq, Japan and the Phillippines.
