SRE Students Meet ‘Tim Possible’
Thursday, October 3, 2019 -
For its first Positivity Project assembly of the school year, Soule Road Elementary students had the opportunity to meet a local individual who personifies many of the project’s positive character traits.
Motivational speaker and author Tim Conners, along with his service dog Lang, shared details of their many adventures, including a trip to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Conners accomplished this feat despite the fact he was diagnosed with cancer at 15 years old, resulting in blindness and organ failure.
While many would have thought their lives were over, Conners showed his bravery and perseverance by choosing not to let the circumstances of his blindness control his life. Since then he has traveled the world, overcoming obstacles and turning challenges into opportunities. His goal is to not only give people hope but also provide them with the same tools that have assisted him throughout his life.
