Wow. This story came across our desk and I thought I’d share it with you. This guy is going to make an amazing vet! Enjoy.

Sky’s the limit for CSU’s first paraplegic veterinary student

“You may think some opportunities are out of reach for you if you are in a wheelchair . A lot of kids dream of being a vet, and I want to show there’s a top-notch institution like Colorado State that is willing to take a chance and believe in you, and you can still be a vet,” he said. “Everyone’s got limitations. I don’t really look at limitations.”

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
