Graduating from high school is a special time for anyone, but for Lynette Caseman, it means even more.
Caseman said her family has been through some pretty rough times lately and they've had to live without many of life's necessities.
She said it was really hard for her to go to school and not worry about the issues she faced at home but she persevered anyway. Her biggest motivator has been her mom, who gave her pep talks when she was feeling overwhelmed.
Caseman was not only able to deal with a hard life at home and still graduate from high school, she was also able to graduate with honors.
She will be attending the University of Georgia in the fall and hopes to major in biology and go on to be a veterinarian.
