It’s graduation season, one of the most inspiratinal and emotional seasons for some of us. Graduating and highering your education is a major accomplishment and one Georgia teen didn’t think he was going to make it.
Jamias Howard, 19, was going through a lot in his personal life during his final semester of school and wasn’t able to attend class, according to Fox5 Atlanta. He had come to the end of his senior year and didn’t think he was going to be able to graduate due to circumstances that were out of his control. Little did he know there was a light at the end of the tunnel by the name of Kimberly Wimbish, a special education teacher at Griffin High School. Wimbish would meet up with Howard after school for private tutoring and found out he indeed had enough credits to graduate.
Wimbish personally delievered Howard’s cap and gown to let him know that he would be able to graduate and his reaction is heart warming:
Trenia Howard, Wimbishes mom told ABC her son contacted her at work right after recieving his cap and gown.
“He said,’Mama you need to get home. You need to come home right now. I’m graduating,’” she told the network. “My eyes starting getting teary when I heard that.”
Wimbish continued to make a difference in her students life by setting up a GoFundMe page to help raise money for his college expenses.
