The crowd was surprised recently when Sef Scott stepped up to the podium during graduation ceremonies at Plano Senior High School in Texas. Because Sef has autism and a social communications disorder, he rarely speaks. So when he proceeded to give a powerful speech about "doing the unexpected," students and spectators were in awe.
For weeks, Sef worked with family members to perfect every sentence of the commencement address so he could surprise his peers. And he did. By the end of the speech, spectators (several of whom were in tears) jumped to their feet to give him a standing ovation.
