                "It's a great honor and I appreciate channel six not only talking about my story, but about all our stories so that other people can look and say, oh, I can do that too, I can do what Salley Stacey does," said Stacy, a Special Education Teacher in Graham.

                Stacy has challenged people to push themselves beyond what society expects of them. Besides being a Special Education Teacher she also coaches Special Olympics and also volunteers throughout the community.

                Stacy has taken her adult and youth students across the country to expand their horizons.

Stacy said that it was the best feeling helping her students ski a mountain, something she said most people thought could not be done.

                Stacy said she hopes others can see her story and become inspired to chase their dreams.
