Now I can...get my college degree

After a football injury left him a quadriplegic at age 16, Robert Cassidy of Ruleville could have given up. But staff at Methodist Rehab showed him that his goals were still within reach. And therapy helped him gain the tools for a successful return to the classroom.
“They have a lot of positive people who motivate you to keep going regardless of the situation,” he says. “Whatever life throws at you, you’ve just got to roll with it.”
Cassidy now rolls confidently around the campus of Delta State University, pursuing a business degree that he hopes will lead to a career helping others. “I’m leaning toward being an entrepreneur,” he says. “Maybe I’ll invent something for people like myself.”
