Valedictorian's Speech

An Atlanta-area deaf high schooler gave a moving speech at his graduation. But Evan Mercer didn't' get to address his fellow students during the ceremony because he is deaf, but because he is the valedictorian of the Harrison High School Class of 2014. WXIA-TV has a video report below. No captions but you can read the story here. The second video is Evan's entire speech (which comes with Googles sometimes helpful automated captions).
