At Jackson Preparatory School football games, Adam Malone has the best seat on the sidelines. It’s a hi-tech, sit-to-stand wheelchair that lets him rise to his role as a Broadcast Club videographer.
As soon as he heard about the club, “I went to see what it was all about,” said the teen with muscular dystrophy. “I learned that they were going to do video recordings and live streaming of the football games. And I knew I wanted to do that.”
Realizing he’d require a more versatile wheelchair, Adam turned to Methodist Rehabilitation Center Assistive Technology Professional Heather Maloney to find the best model for his health and lifestyle needs.
“She took the time to really talk to him about his needs and added details which make his life easier,” said his mother, Angela Malone.
Now, the high schooler is looking ahead to possible career catching the action. “We had a college fair at Prep not too long ago, and a few schools there had good video departments,” he said.
