We recently had our principal John Blankush, who has faught the battle with ALS for almost 2 years now, featured on a local news channel.
They did a great piece on John and what ALS is and how coragious he has been despite the deterioration of his body and speech -
please go to this website to watch John's broadcast - as all of central wisconsin will have learned a little more about ALS.. click on the little red camera above his picture to watch the footage.

Fyi...

... just a tip to help you get to the video - after you click on the red camera - you will be taken to a new window- John's story will load and you need to hit the " play" key to get his story running - you will not see his story on th right because you will have already selected john's video....
Good luck!

Thanks so much for sharing this. What a hero he is to take this horrible illness and turn it into valuable life lessons for those students to carry with them for the rest of their lives, and into an opportunity to raise awareness of ALS and money for ALSA. He's truly an inspiration!
Take care,
Jane
