Daily Republic: FSUSD Adult School grads overcome obstacles to get diplomas

FAIRFIELD — Brandon Williams held on to his walker as he gave his fellow Fairfield-Suisun Adult School graduates this message: We finally made it.

Williams was weeks away from earning his GED and joining the California National Guard when he suffered a massive stroke. The doctors told him he had major nerve damage and may never see again.

Standing in front of his classmates, Williams can now walk and see and, after five years of working toward it, he can finally say he earned his high school diploma.

“Now, I’m here, standing in cap and gown, finally a high school graduate, ” he said.
