Breaking Barriers

Mill Valley News wants to celebrate the experiences of students who have overcome adverse situations. They have a variety of stories, from the student who kept running when she faced an array of health difficulties, to the one whose Down syndrome doesn’t stop him from marching and playing in the band, to the one who recovered from open-heart surgery. All 12 of them share a common thread, though — all are stories about students breaking barriers.
