(Richmond, IN)--One of IU East’s most inspirational graduates this spring is Austin McNew. McNew was paralyzed from the shoulders down in a sledding accident as a student at Northeastern. Now, McNew has completed a double-major at IU East in just three years and is now headed to law school. Austin said that his spinal cord injury pushed him and that he realized he could work with his mind or his body, but chose law so that he could work with his mind. He added that he pushed himself to move through the courses quickly to show anyone that, no matter the circumstances, anything is possible.
