Morgan County 17-year-old helps build landing pad for helicopters

There are 26 comments on the story from Aug 5, 2009, titled Morgan County 17-year-old helps build landing pad for helicopters. In it, reports that:

Joseph Huckeby, 17, is a rising senior at Sunbright School who spearheaded the effort to build a concrete landing pad for emergency helicopters in Deer Lodge, Tenn.

For 10 weeks Joseph Huckeby oversaw heavy equipment belching diesel fumes and the efforts of 40 people to construct a concrete landing pad in Morgan County for medical helicopters that previously had to land in open fields.

Not bad for a 17-year-old rising senior at Sunbright School who has Spina bifida, a birth defect of the spine that causes him to amble with a limp and forced him to undergo 20 surgeries.
