My Parkour Story

Once in a while I find something that I just have to share. The following caught my interest because it involves an activity I have never done, and, at my age, will never do. The writer is a former student at the Wisconsin School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, and one of those who I got to watch grow up. Chris Mathews is now a student at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, and doing well. He also interns with our program at Yerkes Observatory, working at the campus radio station, and served as our commencement speaker at this year’s graduation.
