The TV star has experienced a graduation of her own in the past, with her oldest child, Duff, having headed off to college last year.

Now, it's just a few weeks away until she'll be doing the same with daughter, Katharine, leaving her and husband, Richard McVey as empty-nesters.

The GMA anchor posted a flier on her social media which confirmed the news that Kate Heffenreffer would be playing with the team when term starts.
