Matt Brown, paralyzed in Norwood High School hockey game, graduates from college

Matt Brown, who was paralyzed from the chest down when he broke his neck during a 2010 high school hockey game, has had many accomplishments since his injury six years ago.

He graduated from Norwood High School in 2012; he’s competed in both the Boston and New York marathons; and he’s been an advocate for those suffering from spinal cord injuries, even acting as a speaker at Boston’s Children’s Hospital.

And Sunday, Brown added graduating from Stonehill College to his list of achievements.

Before the ceremony, Brown’s father, Michael Brown took to Facebook to share his pride for his son’s accomplishment.


“The most important thing for everyone to know is how proud we are of Matt,” he wrote. “Four years has not been easy but with the help of friends, family, and roommates have accomplished your goal, very proud of you!”

The Facebook page “PRAY FOR MATT BROWN #3” also shared moments from Brown’s graduation.
