      Becoming that Someone

      Inspiring students to "become that someone," Rick Yarosh shared his story. Injured by an IED in Iraq on Sept. 1, 2006, over 60% of Yarosh's body was burned.  His right leg was amputated below the knee, and he lost both ears, part of his nose, multiple fingers and most of the function in both hands. What he gained, though, is truly inspiring.
