Just before 3 p.m. today (May 13), Thanh Vo will drive to Koch Arena at Wichita State University to pick up her diploma. Most people call it the walk, as in the graduation walk, the short hike across the stage to take the diploma earned with hard study and a good grade point average.
But Thanh will not walk. Instead she will roll, in her wheelchair, a chair in which she has learned many things.
