Move over, Becky Jackson! Rion Holcombe is going to college!
Holcombe, a 20 year old with Down Syndrome, was accepted to Clemson University's LIFE program and this video of him finding out he got in has seriously made my Friday morning.
Watch him open the acceptable letter and beam with joy:
Having been accepted, Rion will be moving on to a unique opportunity this fall.
Clemson's LIFE program is a program designed for students with "intellectual disabilities who desire a post-secondary experience on a college campus."
Only 15 students are accepted into the program, which runs for two years.
I never thought I'd say this, but "Go Tigers!"
Best of luck in 2014, Rion Holcombe!
