NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — We told you last month about a special student, who overcame her disability and was accepted into Vanderbilt's Next Steps Program
On Thursday, Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency honored her with a college scholarship.
When she was just two months old, Courtnie Taylor was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, then scoliosis development delay and most recently a brain tumor.
But she didn't let her disabilities stop her and now she's been accepted into Vanderbilt's Next Steps Program with plans to become a veterinarian.
Courtnie is a recent graduate of Hillsboro High School where she cheered for four years and advocated for other students.
