ZEALAND, Michac (COM)FIREWOOD) – A video of a blind student making a basket during a school basketball game in Michigan has gone viral.
The game was part of the only sports program for special education students in Zealand’s public schools.
The video shows a blind student killing and lowering a basket, causing the crowd to go crazy when they cheer her on.
The student is part of the zLinks school program, a peer initiative to integrate students with special needs.
“zLinks is an absolute source of pride in our system,” superintendent Brandi-Lynn Mendem said in a statement. “We are grateful for how this program has affected our students across the county, as it represents the best of what Zealand has to offer: compassion, opportunity and attitude.”
