OKMULGEE, Okla. — A high school senior who has had cerebral palsy since birth took the first public walk of his life at a very special event this weekend.
Unbeknownst to his classmates, Micah McDade had been working for months on walking. So on Friday, McDade got out of his wheelchair and walked across the stage at Okmulgee High School’s graduation ceremony to receive his diploma.
Naturally, the crowd went wild with cheers and applause when it happened. They even gave him a standing ovation!
The video, which was posted to Okmulgee News Network’s Facebook page, has gone viral with over 200,000 views.
