Dear CSD families,
Mark your calendars for a special opportunity! One week from today, on Wednesday, March 16th at 6:30 p.m. at the Creswell High School gymnasium, internationally renowned speaker Chad Hymas will be sharing a presentation with the community of Creswell entitled “Who needs legs when you have wings?” All are welcome to attend this free community event.
One of the youngest people to ever be inducted into the National Speaker Hall of Fame, Chad travels hundreds of thousands of miles per year, captivating and entertaining audiences around the globe. He has been called by the Wall Street Journal “one of the 10 most inspirational people in the world.”
In 2001, at the age of 27, Chad’s life changed in an instant when a 2,000-pound bale of hay shattered his neck, leaving him a quadriplegic. But Chad’s dreams were not paralyzed that day—he became an example of what is possible.
Chad is a best-selling author, president of his own communications company, and recognized world-class wheelchair athlete. In 2003, Chad set a world record by wheeling his chair 513 miles from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas; he also plays basketball, full contact quad rugby, and races marathons.
In addition to this special community event, next week Chad will be sharing with CSD students and staff his inspirational message about how to overcome adversity, surround ourselves with good people, and impact others.
We hope you will be able to attend on Wednesday evening!
