Christopher Norton promised he would walk across the stage to get his diploma at Luther College in Iowa, and he kept that promise in the most inspiring way.
Norton suffered a spinal-cord injury, while playing with Luther’s football team, that left him paralyzed form the waist down. At the time, was given very little chance to ever walk again. But walk he did Sunday during Luther College’s graduation ceremony.
Assisted by his fiancee, Norton stood from his wheelchair and walked across the stage to receive the diploma he earned months ago, stunning crowd which reacted with an standing ovation. Watch:
This was an unforgettable graduation!
