Father Films Daughter on First Day of School for 12 Years

When Kevin Scruggs‘s daughter Mackenzie started first grade 12 years ago, he decided to pull out his camera and shoot a short interview with the 6-year-old. He then did the same thing on her first day of school for the next 12 years, and this year he turned all the clips into this touching 3-minute video wishing Mackenzie a happy graduation from high school.

“I interviewed my daughter on her first day of school since the 1st grade. Today she graduated from high school,” Scruggs writes. The video has risen to the top of YouTube’s charts and has amassed about 1 million views in the first two days of being online.
