It’s hard to imagine that less than a year ago, there was a good chance that Christine Armas wasn’t going to walk across the stage on her own high school graduation day. In fact, there was a good chance she wouldn’t walk anywhere on her own again.
At first glance, you wouldn’t know that the young, vibrant, now-healthy senior at Corner Canyon High was in a horrific car crash last July that left her with major injuries to her elbow, wrist, ankle and foot. Fallout from the accident uprooted her from her home and interrupted her education. But now, as Christine readies to don her cap and gown and walk across that graduation stage on her own two feet, her scars serve as a reminder of the power of a positive determination to never give up.
