A Very Special Graduation For A Special Young Man

Trenton Reaches A Major Milestone

Charlotte, NC, June 15, 2020

Trenton Hill, who lives with cerebral palsy, was dedicated and studied hard to meet his goal of graduating high school with the rest of his class.  Due to the pandemic, this year’s graduation was a bit different than he anticipated but Trenton was able to receive his high school diploma in-person.

trenton graduatesTrenton said, “You can do anything if you put your mind to it.”  That’s exactly what this young man did.  Thanks to years of support from Easterseals UCP Individual and Community Services (ICS), Trenton received help with daily living skills such as dressing himself and doing homework. 

His mother, Liz Hill, Director of  Easterseals UCP ICS, said, “I’m so very proud of Trenton.  He worked so hard to get to this moment and I know he has a bright future.”

The next step on Trenton’s agenda is to attend a community college followed by studies at a seminary to become a pastor. “I’m so happy!” said Trenton.
