Kessley Reveal

Robotics Team builds ATV for Girl with Cerebral Palsy

Etowah Electric Eagles built a second adaptive ride for Kessley Hales, daughter of Kristi and Mike Hales. Kessley, 6, was born with cerebral palsy. She is often in a wheelchair and is unable to play with the other kids. This all-terrain ride is a PowerWheels Wild Thing modified to accomodate the needs of Kessley.

The ride was presented to the family on March 26 with a surprise unveiling organized by the Holly Springs Police Department at the Holly Springs Baptist Church. It was done during Officer Mike Hales’ shift change so that his friends and family could be there as well.

This service project was done in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Towne Lake which sponsors the Interact Club of Etowah High School.

Since then, the team has been interviewed and featured on Channel 2 Action News, the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
