The 14th NHTI Wheelchair Basketball Benefit was held last week, and as you can probably guess, there were lots of out-of-control drivers rolling around the NHTI court. In addition to all the high-speed crashes and missed wheelers down the lane, the annual event, held in honor of former NHTI student Zech DeVits, helps raise much-needed funds to purchase assistive technology for NHTI students with disabilities. The total raised through ticket sales, the silent auction and the 50/50 raffle was matched by the NHTI Student Senate. And just an FYI, the NHTI team made up of faculty, administrators, staff – and our very own Jon Bodell – won 32-26 over the students.
