When high school senior Noah VanVooren was born with Down Syndrome 18 years ago, doctors told his parents he would never be able to "walk, talk, or do anything," his dad says. Well, Noah just found out he'll be going to college in the fall.

VanVooren, of Little Chute, Wisc., was thrilled to find out he'll be attending Edgewood College as part of its Cutting Edge program, a 4-year college experience for students with developmental disabilities.

You may recognize Noah from the last time he made the news, when, after working as the water boy for his high school football team, he suited up and scored a touchdown last October.



A commenter on Reddit who goes to school with Noah says the acceptance letter video was included in the school's weekly video announcement, to universal applause.
