LYNCHBURG, Va. – Making a difference for adults with disabilities. 

Cadets with the Growth Through Opportunity program are one step closer to graduating after a small ceremony Wednesday.

Three participants, including Peter Trice, earned a certificate for passing the first level of the program. 

GTO helps cadets with social and career skills by working with local first responders. 

"I feel a lot better in this program now then I did before. I'm doing things I never done before. I guess it's made a big difference in my life," Trice said.

Cadets will continue the second level tomorrow with the fire department.
