A dad in North Carolina bought his recently graduated son a billboard recognizing him as valedictorian even though the school refused to do so.

Garry Allmon purchased the large digital sign for his son, Joshua, on U.S. Highway 264 in Wake County, North Carolina to celebrate his four years of hard work.

The proud father posted a photo of the billboard on Facebook, which reads “Joshua Allmon will always be our Valedictorian.”

Garry wrote, “East Wake High School and Wake County Public School Board may not recognize Josh's hard work but we will.”
