OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Seth Dickinson graduated from the University of Mississippi Saturday three years after he nearly died.

The Mantachie native's life changed in 2015 when an unexpected hemorrhagic stroke left him paralyzed and mute.

He was told he would not be able to continue his education, but Saturday proved a different story.

With determination, strength and undying support, Dickinson recovered and walked across the stage to receive his diploma.

He plans to attend law school and become a health care administrator in Mississippi.
