Featured Student

Morrison
While we are proud of each of our graduates, we would like to recognize Abigail Morrison, who walked across the stage during the ceremony.  This is especially significant since Abby was told by Doctors in 2006 that she would never walk again. Watch this video youtu.be/y0I_iHGfb6o to learn more about Abby's story.  Congratulations Abby!
