Twin brothers who went to different West Virginia high schools were both set to graduate on the same night in two different locations, just half an hour apart. That put their parents in a tough spot because they wanted to be there to see both of their sons get their diplomas.
Johnny Boggess, who has cerebral palsy, was graduating from Nitro High and his brother Jeffery, who is deaf, was set to graduate from Capital High’s School for the Deaf. But when school officials heard about the predicament, they worked together to come up with a solution so mom and dad could watch both of boys graduate. They let Johnny go first at Nitro’s ceremony and then, with the help of an escort from the Charleston Police Department, the family and Johnny headed across town to see Jeff’s big moment.
"When they say it takes a village to raise a child, they really mean it," mom Jennifersays. "This just means the world to us."
