Tom Hanks Makes Surprise Appearance During Wright State University's Virtual Graduation - Watch!

Tom Hanks gave the graduating class at Wright State University a huge surprise!

The 63-yeaar-old actor made an appearance during the Ohio college’s virtual commencement ceremony on Saturday (May 2) and shared an empowering message with the students.

“You are the chosen ones because of a fate unimagined when you began your Wright State adventures,” Tom said. “You started in the olden times, in a world back before the Great Pandemic of 2020. You will talk of those earlier years in your lives in just that way.”

Tom continued: “You will be enlightened in ways your degree from Wright State never held in promise. You will have made it through a time of great sacrifice and great need. And no one will be more fresh to the task of restarting our normalcy than you — our chosen ones.”

If you didn’t know, Tom was honored back in 2016 with the Tom Hanks Center for Motion Pictures at the university.
