Alabama Public Television Young Heroes of 2005

Abby Reid

Oxford, Alabama

Three years ago, Abby was involved in a car accident which left her partially paralyzed. Abby insisted on going back to school at the Alabama School for the Deaf (ASD) and maintaining her full academic load while juggling physical therapy sessions and doctors appointments. Abby now walks with the aid of braces and is a member of the school’s volleyball team. Her positive outlook and eager spirit contributed to her winning the title of Miss Alabama School for the Deaf 2003. Her generous spirit inspires, motivates and encourages all of her peers and teachers at the ASD.
