RUSSELLVILLE — An Arkansas Tech University graduate was reunited with his brother in a surprise at ATU's graduation ceremony Saturday.

Jared Qualls who had just returned from an overseas tour of duty as a combat engineer.

The two received a standing ovation from the crowd of about 3,000 as they embraced.
