High School Grad With Cerebral Palsy Shocks Everyone By Walking For The First Time


For one Oklahoma high school student, graduating took a lot more work than usual.

Micah McDade, a senior at Okmulgee High School, was born with cerebral palsy. As his graduation drew near, he became determined to walk like everyone else as he collected his diploma. So, following months of constant practice and preparation, McDade rose to the challenge on graduation day as he was helped out of his wheelchair and physically walked across the stage, much to the eruption of cheers from the crowd.

What an amazing moment. McDade clearly has the heart of a lion and the dedication needed to carry on toward the next step…a college graduation!
