Hunter was one of nearly 1,000 cadets who graduated from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs earlier this year. Unfortunately, his mom and dad weren’t able to attend the in-person ceremony in April due to coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions. Instead, they had to watch a livestream of the event, which Janelle documented on Instagram.

“This year is full of the unusual and bittersweet,” his mom captioned the post. “Not how we imagined we would be watching Hunter commission and graduate, but here we are. Big graduation ceremony tomorrow.”

The 23-year-old son of Kody Brown is at home in Arizona now, and he just received his diploma in the mail. Janelle showed off the impressive plaque on social media. 

“Hunter got his diploma in the mail yesterday,” she wrote. “Distinguished Graduate (top 10%) from the US Air Force Academy. We are so proud of him.”

Now the Hunter has completed his undergraduate degree, he’s ready to take the next step in his life. Janelle revealed that he will soon be moving across the country to attend Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where he’ll earn a master’s degree in nursing. 

In the meantime, Hunter has been spending time with his family near Flagstaff, which makes his mom pretty happy. On social media, she’s shared several photos of him handing out with his siblings during the pandemic lockdown.

“It’s been a fun bonus for this mama to have him home for 3 months this summer,” Janelle wrote in her most recent post. “That was unplanned. But the time is drawing close for him to leave and he will never again be home for this long of a time. It’s very bittersweet.”
