HEARNE- A Hearne High School senior who couldn't walk less than a month ago is now a graduate.
18 year old David Romanos walked across the stage to receive his diploma Friday night at Hearne High's commencement ceremony.
He suffered a spinal cord injury and partial paralysis after a car accident April 14th.
He spent a week in the hospital before transferring to Saint Joseph Patient Rehab in Bryan where he undergoes physical therapy six days a week.
His physical therapist, Phillip Thomas, who's been by Romanos' side through his recovery was there to help David walk across the stage.
David plans to go to Florida this summer for vacation, and attend Blinn College in the fall.
