As Taylor Carpenter walked into Grange Hall Elementary on Monday, students lined the hallways with a standing ovation, offering high-fives and hugs along the way.
Taylor’s dad, Michael Carpenter, caught the heartwarming moment on video as he walked through the school behind her.
“This is inclusion. This is community. This is love,” he wrote on Facebook. “Words cannot express the feeling the love, the joy, the pride, the friendship displayed and represented in the video that represents part of Taylor’s school welcoming her home…celebrating her accomplishment, her journey, and most importantly her.”
