My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.
The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. CC Scott

I received a phone call today from Deborah Lewis of the ELA Foundation. Her kind voice brought back memories of my early school days and a reminder to appreciate those that had helped me achieve some of my dreams. Years ago when I returned to get my master's from the University of Utah, I applied for the Ethel Louise Armstrong Scholarship . This scholarship is for women with disabilities. I received one of their scholarships! The $$ of course was very helpful but also I was so proud and excited to be a part of the Ethel Louise Armstrong Foundation and what it stands for: Total Inclusion for All People! You can read about these women who helped inspire me when I was wondering my abilities through stats class! I look forward to reconnecting with these remarkable women throughout the country.
