Rion Holcombe is a 20-year-old with Down syndrome. According to Rion’s mother, Susan Holcombe, Rion was accepted into a special program called Clemson LIFE. “This is an amazing two year program for a small number (15) of young adults with special needs. This isn’t a program in which one can earn a degree. Right now, Clemson is one of five universities in SC with a LIFE program.”

Degree earning track or not, it’s amazing that Rion gets a chance to fulfill his dream of becoming a college student. Rock on, Rion!
