“It was like an insane sprint:” Clear Creek ISD Senior wanted to graduate after the fight

CLEAR LAKE, Texas (KTRK) – It’s been a busy week for a Clear Creek ISD senior who had more than two months of catching up to do before graduation.

Logan Ward was battling a life-threatening condition that kept him out of school for weeks earlier this year. He nearly died three times and underwent open-heart surgery. Ward was unexpectedly dropped from Clear Falls High School while recovering from open-heart surgery.

“We just didn’t expect them to give him his diploma,” said Tamara Evans, Ward’s mother.

Evans says she knew her son had to earn it.

ABC13 spoke to them Tuesday as they asked the school to let him catch up on work remotely as he was being treated in Arizona.

The school gave Ward a deadline on Thursday.

“It was like a mad rush to complete all his tasks. He’s had over two months to get assignments done,” Evans said.

Ward spent weeks in hospital fighting for his life after a clot was found blocking a pulmonary artery.

“My life basically flashed before my eyes,” Ward said.

He was determined to get on a plane to Houston and enter the final stages on Saturday night.

The Thursday deadline came, and Ward was able to get everything done.

“Just relief and happiness. i thought i was done I finished everything and said I’m done! I’m going to graduate,” Ward said.

On Saturday evening, he will put on his cap and scrubs together with his friends and classmates and will be proud of having reached the goal.

“I’m just so relieved to have graduated from high school. So I can move on with my life and start a new chapter. Because I’m really looking forward to it,” Ward said.

Ward and his mother are grateful to everyone who helped push for answers and give him the opportunity to complete his assignments and graduate.

Closing takes place Saturday night at Clear Creek ISD Challenger Columbia Stadium and Ward will walk the stage.
