How a wheelchair challenge mobilized a high school to become more accessible

Now: how one student’s efforts changed his high school in Texas and made it more accessible for people with disabilities. It’s the subject of nationally recognized video from our Student Reporting Lab in Austin and tells the story of Archer Hadley, a teenager with cerebral palsy who mobilized the entire school community.

Today, our Student Reporting Lab team arrived at the White House for the second annual Student Film Festival. The president congratulated the young producers for finding unique stories about the importance of giving back to one’s community. Over 1,500 schools submitted films. Fifteen were chosen.
