Wisconsin teen with Down syndrome gets into college (VIDEO)

An 18-year-old Wisconsin teen is bursting with pride after reading his acceptance letter to college and the moment was all caught on camera.

Noah VanVooren, a teen with Down syndrome, was recently accepted into Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin.

The teen was accepted into the Cutting Edge program with the college. The program is specially designed for students with intellectual developmental disabilities. Cutting Edge started in 2007 and 32 students have successfully completed the four-year program.

Noah's parents were told 18 years ago, their child would never "walk, talk, or do anything" and now the teen is gearing up for four more years of school.
