“He wanted to be there. It made him really sad to think about his classmates going through graduation without him. So, I got to thinking, and decided Christian was going to graduate anyway. He will receive that diploma. We will turn what could've been a very sad night for him into a happy milestone he can remember for years to come. It means the world to him that he's still able to graduate with his classmates tonight. He can't wait to celebrate,” said Kim Mayberry.
The school sent a cap and gown as well as an honorary diploma to Christian Mayberry, who now resides in Florida.
