Paralyzed High School Student Walks Across Stage To Accept Diploma

Filed under: Etc.

Now THIS is determination!

Three years ago, a paralyzed sophomore vowed to one day walk across his graduation stage.

On Tuesday, Patrick Ivison fulfilled the promise he made to his family, to his Scripps High School classmates, and to himself!!

AMAZING!!

The Ivison family was forever changed in 1995 when a stranger’s car ran over the 14-month-old Patrick — but it would never stop him from leading a life filled with adventure!!

He learned to ski, kayak, and even surf — but the San Diego student eventually set his sights even higher.

Even though it required tons of rigorous physical therapy, Patrick was committed to walking across his graduation stage!!

Ch-Ch-Check out the moving video (above) to see how he did — we just KNOW it’ll give you the warm and fuzzies!!
