College Station twin with cerebral palsy shocks family by walking at graduation

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) – Meet a set of local twins, Jordyn and Taylor Scruggs, born prematurely. As a result, the College Station sisters suffered from brain hemorrhages.

At the age of 3, Taylor was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, a neurological disorder.

Taylor has been defying the odds since her diagnosis, Saturday she walked across the stage, without help from a walker, and collected her degree from the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor in Belton.

“We had no idea,” said Jordyn Scruggs. “I wish there was a camera to see our families reaction because I was bawling.”

Taylor says she credits her success to therapy, support of family and a never settle attitude.

“Whatever it is that you think is holding you back there is always a way to be able to do it,” said Taylor.

In a few days, Taylor is moving to Utah to start a new job. In the future, she hopes to use her psychology degree to work with those who have similar disabilities.

Jordyn is set to graduate in August from Texas A&M with a degree in Communications and Business.
