October is Disability Awareness Month in America. At Mead, October 2 we will be having an assembly with speaker Kacey McCallister. Kacey is a young man who experienced a tragic accident as a child, losing both his legs. As a speaker, he shares a positive message of how to live with courage and purpose regardless of your circumstance and how to “rise up” in the face of challenge and adversity.
