"Mama June" Shannon posted this photo of the family celebrating Jessica's graduation from Wilkinson County High School.

"I'm so proud of Jessica," family matriarch "Mama June" Shannon posted. "She will the first in our family to graduate. I only got my GED."

Jessica will now pursue nursing school.

"I'm so glad she will be helping others and continuing her education," Mama June posted along with a family photo that indicates everyone is getting along these days. She and Sugar Bear announced some time ago they had split up but remain friends.

Her daughter Anna also spoke out against her mom amid allegations June was seeing a convicted child molester - claims that June denied but that caused TLC to yank "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" from its rotation. The family squabbled a bit online following the TLC decision but evidently managed to mend fences.

June and the girls (minus Anna, who is married with kids of her own now), have moved to Hampton but maintain a mailing address in McIntyre, where they hail from. If you'd like to send Jessica a card congratulating her on her graduation, June lists this address: P.O. Box 72, McIntyre, GA, 31054.
