College hosts Disabilities Awareness Month events
Tuesday, March 24, 2015 — Motivational speaker Tony Williams, a Chicago, Illinois classmate of Lassen Community College President Marlon Hall who was shot in the back by a gang sniper at age 15, will address students and the community as part of Disabilities Awareness Month.
According to a press release from the college, Williams will speak on topics “to keep youth out of harm’s way and in school” at 1 and 3 p.m. at Middleton Hall on the LCC campus.
Williams wrote an autobiography titled “Peace in My Dreams,” in which he recounts the March 27, 1973 incident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. The book describes his recovery process and explains what it’s like to suffer a spinal cord injury and then live with its aftermath.Add a comment
