The 2018 Adelyn Rea Memorial Scholarship Winner William Hind
William was born with a CHD condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome with intestinal malrotation. In addition all of his organs are flipped over to the opposite side of his body. William has spent the 17 years of his life in and out of hospitals with some being very serious stays and multiple surgeries. Williams dream has been to be firefighter, wanting to help people who hurt. He frequently visits a local fire station and has been a member of the Lincoln Fire Department Explorer Program for the past year. Recently he learned that due to his heart condition he will not be able to live out this dream. He isn't letting that stop him. This year he is graduating from Lincoln East a year early and will enroll in college to become a paramedic. William keep being a fighter...keep pursuing your dreams!!!
