Getting accepted to higher education is a big moment in some people's lives, but for Rion Holcombe, it may have been the best moment of his life.

Holcombe has Down syndrome. He applied to a special needs program at Clemson University called LIFE. He had to send in a video to be accepted into the program.

After a while, Holcombe received a letter from the school letting him know he had been accepted. It's takes him a few seconds to wrap his head around what he's reading, but when he does, his face glows.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a bigger smile. Congrats, Rion!
