Learner Spotlight: Logan Verne
November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month and this month, our learner spotlight features Logan Verne. Logan is a 10th grader in our program who has lived with epilepsy since he was two years old.
Logan is a friendly, kind-hearted young man who enjoys being with his family, playing Smash Brothers with his Switch, listening to music, and creating 3-D objects with his new 3-D printer. This past summer, Logan was the recipient of a 3-D printer from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The representatives were surprised by his request for a 3-D printer because no one had asked for one before. They were happy to fulfill his wish!
Logan now enjoys creating all kinds of characters in his 3-D printing class. He loads the blueprints and creates toys and gifts for those around him. He shared, “I like to make stuff for myself and for other people that I know and love.”
Logan says his favorite part of Exploration is his teachers. Logan meets via Zoom each week with his tutor, Joshua Hays, from ABC Guidance. He considers Mr. Hays to be part of his family or his “friendily” and enjoys the creative assignments and projects they work on together for school.
As part of epilepsy awareness, Logan would like to share this with his fellow high schoolers: “If you have epilepsy, never give up on yourself. You have to keep on fighting. I know epilepsy sucks, but you can keep on fighting no matter what. You are your own warrior!”
We are proud of you, Logan, and all of your accomplishments. Keep fighting!
