Student at Saddleback peruses higher education despite suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Porter Aydelotte, a 21-year-old diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, is attending Saddleback College in hopes of transferring to Chapman and get a degree in journalism or film. When he is not doing schoolwork, he is consuming pop culture or hanging out with friends. Specialized equipment, his personal aid, and other services help him with academic and everyday challenges. Although most of his services are paid for by private means or government assistance, in August, Porter received the Route 79 Scholarship, which will make it possible for him to continue his education.
