Entire Graduating Class Stays Silent as Autistic Classmate Gets His Diploma

Wow...this gives me great hope for the next generation...they were asked to remain silent during their graduation ceremony so an autistic young man with sensory issues could receive his diploma...and they did!

"An amazing thing took place at Carmel High School’s graduation. One of our students Jack Higgins was presented with his diploma. Jack graduated after 8 years. He is a wonderful member of our student community. Jack has autism and with that comes sensory issues. At graduation the student body and several thousand individuals were asked to not clap or cheer so Jack could participate. What followed was nothing short of a miracle. We shot for the moon but instead reached the stars." - Principal Lou Riolo
