Paralyzed teen walks at commencement

And now your weekend commencement update:

Seven years ago next week, Garrett Bazany, then 15, performed a double front flip on his family’s trampoline. He landed on his head and woke up in the hospital, paralyzed from the chest down.

He thought his life was over.

He persisted through high school and went to college with a plan to be a physician’s assistant.

His name was the last one called on Saturday at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Then he walked to get his diploma.
