Refugee from Syria graduates from N.J. high school

It was a day of celebration for the graduating class from ACT Academy in Paterson, New Jersey. Among the graduates was Mohamad Chacha, a Syrian refugee. In 2011 he and his family left home with nothing. He was 14 years old at the time. The family went to Lebanon for about a month and a half and then went to Cuba. They spent a year and three months in Cuba before coming to Paterson and became one of the first Syrian families accepted into the United States refugee program.
