Akron, OH — A Norton High School senior walked for the very first time at his graduation ceremony Tuesday night.
Bryce Swartz was born with severe spina bifida and paralyzed from the chest down. The always upbeat 20-year-old has been through a lot, including a dozen surgeries, but was still voted the Panthers Homecoming King and received the “Courageous Student Award” from OHSAA.
His father Rod says, he has come a long way.
