Dwyer, who withdrew from classes his junior year to receive a lifesaving bone-marrow transplant to treat high-risk leukemia, returned for classes his senior year and he worked to catch. He is only 2.5 credits short of meeting the requirements to graduate from Dobson. He expects to graduate in December. The school and the Mesa Public Schools district officials said Dwyer may not wear his cap and gown, but can lead the Class of 2016 out at the beginning of the ceremony.(David Wallace/The Arizona Republic via AP) MARICOPA COUNTY OUT; MAGS OUT; NO SALES; MANDATORY CREDITPHOENIX (AP) — Overwhelming public support is outweighing any lingering bitterness for a suburban Phoenix high school student who kept up with classes through cancer treatments but wasn't allowed to walk at graduation.
