For Sarah Zoobin, the upcoming graduation weekend feels bittersweet.
"I feel excited. And maybe a little bit sad," Zoobin said.
Sarah, along with her classmates Elizabeth Campbell and Tryniti Chaney will walk across the stage Saturday after completing the four year "Where The Learning Continues" program at West Texas A&M.
It's aimed at offering intellectually challenged students a college experience.
"They do everything from going to games, to taking classes, to experiencing college life in general, just by hanging out at the JBK," Andrea Porter, Director of Education on Demand said.
That collegiate experience has led these girls to a big milestone this weekend.
"I'm going to feel very excited and real proud of myself. Getting to accomplish it. And what I've done," Amanda Campbell said.
"WT is a wonderful school. To you know, come, and meet new friends and teachers," Chaney said.
Saturday's commencement will of course be a special day, not only for the graduates, but for their supporters in the stands as well.
"When she graduated high school, we wanted her to experience what everybody else experiences, but we didn't know how that was going to happen," Dolores Zoobin, Sarah's mom said, "And I'm just so proud of her. With everything else going on in her life. For her to complete this, has just been wonderful."
As for Sarah, when asked if has any final thoughts as a WT student, she told us,
Taking that buffalo pride with her, as she takes a step into the next chapter of life.
