Nonverbal Student Delivers Inspiring Commencement Speech

Graduation speeches are always special and meaningful, but Sef Scott's will be remembered by those who attended and now the internet for years to come. Scott has autism and is mostly nonverbal at school, so his speech was certainly a surprise and unexpected. Scott explained how doing the unexpected is really the best thing you can do in life and that you should step off of paths that aren't really your own hopes and dreams. Thank you for the reminder to always embrace the changes in life and live in the moment, Sef! We're super inspired. via PISDCommunications View Now
