A drive-by graduation party was held for two twins graduating from LSU.

The Lahaskys, Taylor and Sidney, will be graduating from Medical School and Dental School, respectively.

On Monday, well wishers drove by their home handing them gifts and honking their horns. It's not the typical graduation party but with social distancing the new normal, drive-bys of praise and support have become common.

Taylor received her diploma by email on Monday. According to family, she will be leaving for residency on July 1. The family held a mock-graduation ceremony outside.

Sydney will begin her dental practice in June.

"Med School is kind of a grueling process to say the least and to know to have all that support who's helped me get to where I am today to be all in one place was just a dream come true honestly," Taylor Lahasky said.

The Lahaskys are from New Iberia and are also graduates of Catholic High School.
