Vent-Dependent Quadriplegic Earns Master's Degree

My blog is about empowering wheelchair users, and I hope that by sharing that I recently graduated with a Masters of Entrepreneurship from Western Carolina University, perhaps others will be encouraged to pursue additional education or whatever they desire.  I finished my Bachelor's degree and earned my Master's online in accredited degree programs.  If it helps to provide further encouragement, in every course since becoming paralyzed, I earned an A grade.

Lori Carter, a freelance writer for the Orlando Sentinel, did a story on my graduation and some of my activities.  The story was fairly long and the Sentinel chose to break it up into two smaller articles.  Here are the titles and links...

Overcoming disability, Leesburg resident Bill Miller earns master's degree:,0,6799500.story

Quadriplegic Bill Miller doesn't let disability slow him down:,0,5074569.story

Philippians 4:13 (NIV) "I can do all this through him who gives me strength."

All glory to God, and God bless all!

Great job pushing through to get your degree! I recently went back to college to pursue a degree in accounting. Online classes certainly make it a less stressful activity and I find myself learning better having to teach so much to myself.
