On Monday, September 10, 2012, the HCC SouthShore Campus had the honor of spending a morning with Eric LeGrand. His example of perseverance, hope and a positive attitude inspired many students, particularly the nursing students.
Former star football player for Rutgers University and honorary team member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, LeGrand shared his story of overcoming the life-changing injury that put him in a wheelchair and his battle to beat the odds during his rehabilitation.
HCC President Dr. Ken Atwater introduced Eric and encouraged HCC students to take his inspiring example of hard work and optimism to heart.
LeGrand's determination and strength are forces to be reckoned with—and HCC students will never forget his story and will to BELIEVE.
