Inspiration & Motivation: Travis Roy Delivers

Travis Roy was only eleven seconds into his first hockey game at Boston University when his dreams were shattered by a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed in 1995. On Friday, the motivational speaker and author shared his never-die spirit and inspiration when facing life's challenges with the Cushing community in an all-school assembly and lunch with varsity captains.
