Chelsey’s Fishing Story: The Ezra Project!

Education’s Business: Taking Positive Actions

Examples of neighborly acts often go un-celebrated in our society.  As a freshman at Stockbridge High School, Chelsey Asquith approached long-time family friends to offer an idea that would positively impact their young son.  Ezra has a birth defect that limits his ability to fully experience his love of fishing.  That limitation is now being minimized.

With the school 3-D printers at the ready, Chelsey and her InvenTeam set out to design and deliver a functional assistive adaptive fishing pole to bring greater joy and success to Ezra.  Fellow students, Molly Nichols and Katie Miller offered their help in “shining a light” on this amazing happening by producing a short video.  The young talent in our schools continues to raise the achievement bar.
