Matt Blanchard Speaks to DRA

Diamond Ranch Academy had a very special speaker last night. Matt Blanchard came to the ranch and told his story.
What an amazing story it was…

Seven years ago Matt was in a horrific auto accident that left him paralyzed. The day of his accident he tells the boys how he was told so many times that day to put his seat belt on by his best friend. He then went on to tell us how is choice then had impacted every person and aspect of his life.

Matt showed the boys a movie of him going through therapy to try to walk again and the struggles that he went through. I think that you could have heard a pin drop in the building.  

The boys stayed behind and didn’t want to leave. They asked great questions of Matt and wanted to get a group photo. A special thanks to Matt for taking the time to talk with us, and a special thanks to the boys for representing themselves well.
