Money expert Dave Ramsey spoke to students graduating from UT's college of business on Friday.
The East Tennessee native is a UT alum.
He gave the crowd of students words of encouragement about the future, and one of those faces was his own son.
"Probably this is one of the most fun days of our family's history. Just to get to speak at UT commencement having graduated from here is a huge honor. But to get to do it on the day my son is walking, now that is special," he said.
Ramsey's son graduated with a business degree. His daughter is also a UT graduate.
