April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day. Colton Meridith was first diagnosed at age three. He put in an amazing amount of work, and because of that, he is thriving.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” asked WOWT’s Malorie Maddox.
Colton: “A doctor”
Malorie: “A doctor? Why?!”
Colton: “Because my mom wants me to and I want to take care of other people.”
He’s only in 3rd grade, but Colton Meridith has a memory most adults would give anything for. Just ask him about movies.
