The power of social media was on full display once again as Dwayne Wade surprised graduates of a South Florida high school by not only showing up but giving a speech. The whole process started when Western High senior Negeen Fallahzedah started the hashtag #WadeToWestern on every social media outlet she could find. She was able to get her whole school to begin using it and whalah. The school official even got in on the fun stating that Wade would make a speech on a pre-recorded video. When the video started, the man himself showed up and hugged the girl who started the whole process. He then gave a speech to the graduates. Check out the video of Wade giving the speech.

We have seen the power of social media bring celebrities, athletes and more close to their fans. From proms to charity events and now graduations. Start your own hashtag and maybe you'll get the chance to meet your favorite celebrity.
