HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A Godwin High School senior, who has cerebral palsy, had a goal to walk across the graduation stage to receive her diploma.

On Tuesday, Maggie Rocke achieved that goal.

Henrico County School shared the video to social media and it has gone viral.

Unfortunately, there wasn't a large crowd like it would have been if it wasn't for the coronavirus -- but people who were there cheered her on.

In the video -- Maggie says it was all a little surreal after she walks across the stage.
