Senior Graduates Through Remote Controlled iPad from Hospital Bed
Leflore High School Senior Cynthia Pettway was devastated after being hospitalized right before the week of graduation, as stated by the Good News Network. However, that didn't stop her from not only attending the ceremony but also making her away across the graduation stage.
Pettway used an iPad to two way stream her graduation, and then used a remote control and a set of robot wheels she could "roll" around. This was all done by Mobile County Public School System and the USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital in Mobile, Alabama.
Watching the video you can tell that she greatly appreciated getting to be there virtually. This is such a sweet story. As we approach the graduation season, I hope that the futures of seniors all over the Ark-La-Tex are bright and full of happy adventures.
