TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST...Epic viral video of a special needs kid getting into college: This will make you smile. It's a Youtube video going viral, of a 20-year old with Down Syndrome getting an acceptance letter that tells him  he's gotten into a special program at Clemson University. The student's name is Rion Holcombe. It takes him a little while to realize what the letter says, but once he figures it out, the absolute joy is fantastic. Rion's mom writes that "this is an amazing two year program for a small number (15) of young adults with special needs. This isn't a program in which one can earn a degree...I love that kids like Rion get to experience college life and this type of independence." The video's been viewed over 640,000 times.
