Sometimes silence speaks volumes, and that was definitely the case during this incredible moment of Carmel High School’s graduation ceremony. Jack Higgins has Autism and is sensitive to loud noises, so the student body was asked not to clap or cheer when he accepted his diploma. The students stayed quiet and rose to give him a silent standing ovation. The way the students all came together to support Jack was such a powerful moment.
