BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. — A recent college grad was in for a big surprise on Sunday.
The community came together for a drive-by salute form Rakeem Bowdry.
He just finished what some thought was impossible. Bowdry earned his communications degree from the Community College of Baltimore County.
He was a college student in Mississippi when a car crash left him a quadriplegic.
The graduate came to Kennedy Krieger institute for treatment and was a guest at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maryland for two years.
“It felt amazing to be all the way from MS to here as a resident of MD to have this amount of support, it filled my heart with so much joy. I couldn't thank the community enough and all the PPL I had an impact on, it's a blessing.
Sunday's drive-by parade at Dickeyville Elementary School included a police escort, signs, signing and gifts.
