It was an emotional moment when special education teacher Kimberly Wimbish surprised her student, Jamias Howard, 19, with his graduation cap and gown -- an accomplishment that certainly had its challenges along the way.
“Oh man, thank you,” Jamias Howard told Wimbish in her touching Facebook video that went viral.
“Congratulations,” she replied through the car window.
“Appreciate it, ma’am. I love you so much,” said an overwhelmed Jamias Howard. “Thank you so much for everything you do for me. Appreciate it.”
After his devoted teacher reminded him about his graduation rehearsal at 8 a.m., Jamias Howard can be seen wiping away tears as he once again told her, “I love you so much.”
