Nothing beats your family members being there for you on that glorious day when you don your graduation gown.

At last, you're done, and you want to celebrate a period well spent in school, but it is never complete when the ones you care about the most do not show up.

That was not the case for Patricia Lee as her half-sister, the famous media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey turned up for her big day.

Oprah Winfrey graced the graduation ceremony for University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee students alongside her man, Stedman Graham.

She came with her security team, but they blended in seamlessly with the crowd; reading their programs like everyone else.

In fact, a lot of the attendees did not know that Oprah was in their midst, but some did.

Soon after the commencement ceremony began at the UW-Milwaukee Panther arena, posts and pictures showed up on Twitter about the media mogul's presence.

How humble!
