DESOTO, Texas - A DeSoto native shared the moments he walked across the stage to receive a communication degree from the University of North Texas at Dallas.
It’s a big moment for many, but it meant even more for Corey Borner, who was paralyzed from the chest down.
In 2009, a hard hit at football practice gave him a life altering spinal injury when he just 16 years old.
Now, he's a motivational speaker who shares his story of triumph with the world.
This summer, Borner took his first steps in 12 years. The 28-year-old thanks his family, his friends, and his faith for helping him reach an incredible milestone.
