NEWS FLASH! Southern Disability Foundation, Inc. partnered with Calhoun County Board of Education,to identify a student and family that could benefit from a van equipped with an accessible lift for personal transportation. Joe Helm and Mike Alamaroad coordinated the effort with Bodie Ingram, Owner, Phase III Mobility of Montgomery, Ed Row, Assistant Superintendent, and Dr. Charlene Hill, Executive Director for Special Education for Calhoun County Schools. Dr. Hill was instrumental in working with school personnel throughout the Calhoun County School system to identify an appropriate student and family. The van was officially donated on June 11th, 2015, at a meeting of the Calhoun County Board of Education. The van was donated to Joshua and Charlotte Gowan to support their daughter Briana Gowan who is an 8th grade student at Wellborn High School.
