Commencement 2012: Hehir Presents Kevin Mintz with Diploma

In a tearful moment for many at Commencement 2012, Professor Thomas Hehir gave Kevin Mintz of Harvard College a bachelor’s diploma. “We don’t normally distribute bachelor of arts degrees but we made an exception for Kevin Mintz,” he said, noting that when Mintz came to Harvard four years ago he found the college wasn’t as friendly for disabled students. So, Mintz “wheeled” over to the Ed School, where he found a welcoming environment that “values all children and all people,” Hehir said.
