Military mom surprises daughter at school in Mount Pleasant


MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) — It was an emotional reunion between a mom and her two daughters who have been separated for most of the past year.

Patrice Williams is in the military. She was stationed in Korea this year for a solo assignment. Her young daughters Taleyiah and Quinterra were there today as she surprised them at Phillip Simmons Middle School in Wando.

Taleyiah says she missed having her mom around. “Not really having someone there to talk to, yeah it’s been hard. It’s been hard.”

Patrice also missed Taleyiah’s 12th birthday on Tuesday, but they made up for it with a party at school today with her friends.
