Zachary Bellier and Naomi McAllister go to different schools. They have different friends. Different interests. They lead entirely different lives. But both have something in common: they have supportive families, a positive outlook and both have overcome personal obstacles as they prepare to graduate this week from Gwinnett County Public Schools.
