A little about our site
On November 16, 2017, Skool Aid will be coming to Rock Hill Middle School. This assembly style program is a unique presentation that dispels myths about persons who have a disability and shows your students how they can be successful in and out of the classroom. World class wheelchair basketball athlete, Jacob Counts, who happens to have a disability, is coming to your school on November 16, 2017 to “tell it like it is” about life with a disability. This program consists of three parts. First, Jacob will share his successes he has experienced both on and off the basketball court, and show how these experiences have benefited his overall lifestyle. Following will be a “no holds barred” question and answer period during which the audience (students and faculty) will have the opportunity to gain knowledge about disabilities. The third part of the presentation will be a demonstration of fundamental wheelchair basketball skills, which is sure to thrill and amaze your students and faculty. This program will provide motivation to all students and faculty, as well as point out how overcoming obstacles in life can provide the tools needed for success. It also has a bit of a anti-bullying theme, as the program promotes the idea of embracing differences and accepting others through empathy.
