Disability Awareness Month event: “Rachel’s Miracle” Oct. 31

RachelRachel Barezinsky today, five years after the shooting.

October is Disability Awareness Month, and on the final day, Columbus State’s Disability Services Department would like you to join them to hear from Rachel Barezinsky. It has been just over five years since Rachel was shot in the head while sitting in a car with other teenagers in Worthington, days before starting their senior year in high school. Doctors initially gave her a 1 percent chance of survival, but she miraculously survived and was even able to attend her homecoming only one month later. She was able to walk across the stage to receive her diploma to a standing ovation only nine months later, and has continued to make a more than 90 percent recovery.  Rachel’s story of survival will inspire others to overcome adversity through faith, friendship, love and family. The event will be held Monday, October 31, at 3 p.m. in the Center for Workforce Development (WD) Room 404
