OU had its 121st Commencement Friday night and one of the long-time traditions is "The Highlanders" Bagpipe and Drum Corps. 

Todd Moran's been playing with the group since he was 13 years old. He also plays the cello and the piano. 

On Friday night, he not only played with the Highlanders, he also collected a Construction Science degree, and a minor in Business.  And he graduated Magna Cum Laude, which means "with great honor." 

Moran already has a job lined up as a project manager with a Midwest City construction company. However… 

"I'll be [playing the bagpipes] for the rest of my life," he said.
