"Stand Tall" with John Buchanan
The seventh grade students are reading "Stand Tall" by Joan Bauer, and one of the main characters is an amputee. Mrs. Hensley and Mrs. Gray had John Buchanan from Hanger Clinic: Prosthetics and Orthotics present in the library. He showed the students prosthetics and explained the process a patient goes through when becoming an amputee. Losing his leg at the age of fourteen, Mr. Buchanan was able to show them his own prosthetic and how it works.
