Student with Leukemia Receives Pre-School Diploma in Bridgeport


It was an exciting day at Bridgeport as students graduated from pre-school. Although not all of them could be in attendance Friday, one little guy certainly wasn’t left out.

The kids huddled in their classroom going over there songs for the final time this school year. It was then time to put on their caps; each of them had a ribbon that says Leo, in support of their classmate Leo Zambori who is battling leukemia.

As the kids marched into the gymnasium, they were greeted by their friend and classmate who they haven’t seen much of this year.

The school was able to have little Leo attend his graduation using FaceTime.

Bridgeport School‘s Superintendent, Zac Shuttler says, he’s really happy the staff was able to include Leo in the ceremony and he says he was happy to see him.

“Technology is wonderful, with something as simple as FaceTime, and he was able to be a part of the ceremony. He had his graduation cap, he received his pre-school diploma, and the best part was the kids got to say hi to him,” said Superintendent Shuttler.

Leo was happy to see his friends, too, as he smiled and watched them get their diplomas.

At the end of the ceremony all of Leo’s classmates waved and smiled as they said ‘Leo Strong’.
