Student Gets Van For School
March 10, 2003
BEVIS, OHIO--Monday's Cincinnati Enquirer ran a brief item about high school student Michelle Schoone, who was disappointed to learn some time ago that her school's accessible van was wearing out and would not be replaced.
"I wasn't too happy about it, I can tell you that," said Schoone, 18, who has spina bifida and has been diagnosed as having mental retardation.
Instead of accepting the situation, Schoone decided to take action.
And because of her work, the school has a brand new van.
"I like helping people do things because it's good for them and good for me," she said. "We get the job done together."
