A student with autism in New York received a pleasant surprise from his classmates on his graduation day. When he went up to the platform at Carmel High School to receive his diploma, he received a silent ovation, that is, instead of applause, total silence was heard in the theater. Jack Higgins, who suffers from autism, is very sensitive to noise, so the school principal asked those present not to applaud during the ceremony.

To make him feel loved and accepted, instead of applauding him, the rest of the students, teachers, and family members waved at him and stood up to honor him. The video of the emotional moment when Jack receives his diploma has gone viral.

Lou Riolo, the high school principal, was very proud of Jack and the rest of the 'class of 2019', calling the success of the ceremony "a miracle." "It was important to achieve this," Riolo told CNN. "We gave everyone in that theater a chance to help make the dreams of this young man and his family celebrate his graduation a reality." The principal said he was happy to witness the compassion and solidarity shown by all the students.
