Oklahoma high school student Micah McDade has cerebral palsy, which usually confines him to a wheelchair. But on Friday's Okmulgee High School commencement ceremony, McDade stood and walked--for the first time ever--to receive his diploma.

McDade was born with cerebral palsy. He's had many surgeries and put in long hours of physical therapy to prepare for his first public walk at graduation. His classmates gave him a standing ovation.
