More Fall Captain's Academy

Submitted by neely.mcewan on Thu, 09/29/2022 - 11:19

Our Fall captains were able to hear from Jordan Stevenson, a Navy veteran who was shot in his head in Afghanistan. Stevenson is a former division 1 athlete who was told he would never walk or talk again. He spoke to the student leaders about how we never stop believing in ourselves, take one step at a time, and just keep going. He can walk and talk because he just took it a step at a time and trusted in himself. What great advice to our students to not only help them throughout their education but throughout their life as well.
