ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A positive update to a story of a Georgia Tech student from Albany who was injured in an accident last fall. 

Grant Brunson is making incredible strides as he recovers from his injuries sustained from an accident during a fraternity team building exercise while at college. 

Brunson is a graduate of Westover High School. 

And as he recovers, the school system continues to send their thoughts and prayers to Grant and the Brunson family. 

"To go from a situation where you have such incredibly intensive injuries, people talking about not walking again, and things like that," said Dougherty County Schools Spokesperson JD Sumner. "To see him now on the road to recovery and doing the rehab thing, it's encouraging for all of us."

Sumner said the Westover High School family has come together since the accident to raise money for the Brunson family and show their support.
