Kyle Boule, a special-ed program graduate of Goffstown High School in New Hampshire, was given an epic, sweet sendoff by over 1,200 students and staff.
Video of the the sendoff, fittingly set to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” shows Kyle wheeling down the school’s hallways lined with students on both sides clapping and cheering for the graduate. He also has an entourage following behind him made up of his friends and staff from the school’s special-ed program.
The sendoff this past Wednesday was doubly special for Kyle because it also happened to be his 21st birthday, according to his mother, Lisa Boule.
“The whole thing was a complete surprise for me, and it just really touched my heart,” Lisa, 46, told ABC News. “I got a text at work from one of his friends about it, and I left on whim because it was a once-in-a-lifetime thing for Kyle.”
