HearStrong Champion Awarded To Cayman Student
The HearStrong Foundation is a wonderful organization that aims to shatter all the social stigmas and to challenge the perceptions of those with hearing loss in today’s society. Recently, a local Cayman Island Student was recognized by this inspirational foundation. Zachary Franklin, a sophomore athlete is an influential individual and gives so many people hope and definitely challenges the way people view those with hearing disabilities and many other forms of disabilities as well. What it takes to be a HearStrong Champion is no easy feat. Those chosen must have a determined spirit when facing their challenges, a focused mind, and an unwavering heart.” Zachary Franklin was nominated by his audiology Doctor, Dr. Annette Stephenson. She nominated him because of his determined attitude with his involvement with multiple sports including swimming, sailing, track & field, and soccer. Today, Zachary wants his experience to inspire others with hearing loss to go after their goals and never hold themselves back. He is truly an inspiration to everyone on the Islands and especially to us here at EightPoint!
