“It’s a good opportunity for the board to go in and at least remove the bad history. Even if they can’t remove all the problems, they can at least take the bad history out and make sure that what students are learning in their classrooms is based on real facts.”
“I want to show that people need not be limited by physical handicaps as long as they are not disabled in spirit.”
“Certainly we are all embarrassed, but for the most part he represents what we stand for.”
“I was hurt, scared and thrown in solitary in hopes that I would be forgotten, but today I can be proud that I never gave up.”
