Welcome Travis Roy

posted Apr 2, 2018, 7:24 AM by Eben Shaw

Please join me in welcoming Travis Roy to Leavitt.  He is the author of Eleven Seconds, a book that chronicles his experiences before and after suffering a spinal cord injury during the first shift of his first ever Division 1 hockey game with Boston University.  Mr. Roy is also the founder of the Travis Roy Foundation an organization that has raised over $6 million for spinal cord research and grants for individuals who have suffered spinal cord injuries.  Mr. Roy will speak with our student body on Friday April 6th about overcoming challenges and working toward personal goals.  I want to thank Mrs. Lashman for working to organize this event as well as the Leavitt Trustees who have provided their support.
