Paralyzed student walks across graduation stage

Khalil Watson, 25, will enroll at VCU, where after he achieves his bachelor's degree, he plans to pursue a master's in social work. "We all need assistance, some more than others. I feel like I’m the best fit for that profession," he said. "Going through what I experienced has enabled me to easily connect with individuals and understand individuals who have similar situations as mine, or worse."
