    Congrats Noah!

    Quadriplegic Man Gets Prestigious Scholarship

    EUGENE, Ore. - A random traffic accident in 2002 crushed the cab of Noah Smith's pickup, shattered one of his vertebra and left the then University of Oregon junior a quadriplegic.

    Almost five years later, Smith is a recipient of one of the nation's most generous and prestigious scholarships.

    The 26-year-old from Hood River was recently named one of 34 students to receive a 2007 Jack Kent Cooke Graduate Scholarship.

    The award will fund entirely Smith's studies at the Boalt School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley. He starts classes this fall.

    Good job.

    "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

    Excellent! Quite an accomplishment!
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.
