Scott County High School student Cramer Schneider will soon receive the 2012 Yes I Can! Award from the Kentucky Council for Exceptional Children (KYCEC) for his Extra-Curricular leadership and involvement in 4-H and FFA. Cramer is an award-winning Simmental cattle showman and was selected as the Bluegrass Regional FFA President and Vice-President of the Scott County High School FFA chapter.
What started as a family hobby shared with his father and sister has become a passion for Cramer who plans to major in agriculture in college. “I love doing this.” Cramer said, “I am always very honored when people say they are inspired by what I do.”
This is a humbling experience for a successful student who has been blind since age three. Cramer credits his parents who have always told him there is no reason he shouldn’t be able to do what he loves. He also expresses his appreciation to former teachers from Western Elementary School and Scott County Middle School in addition to SCHS teachers Jean Hardy, Amity Norton and Lindsay Wayne.
Cramer’s nomination will now move on to national Yes I Can! award competition. Congratulations and best of luck!
