Overcoming Obstacles and Graduating

WAVERLY, Ohio --Most students couldn't imagine making it through school with multiple disabilities,but Waverly senior Jonathan Hill, 17, has lived with cerebral palsy and developmental disabilities throughout his entire school career.
"Jonathan wasn't born with a disability, but when he was very small, he contracted pneumococcal meningitis, which attacked his spinal column and left him disabled," said Hill's mother, Brenda.
Despite his handicaps, Jonathan's experience in school has been a positive one, and he has received support from not only teachers, but also fellow students.
