By Jane Slayton Former AEMS and Proctor alumnus Nick Fairall visited Andover Elementary Middle School as a representative from the non-profit organization HIGHFIVES. Nick gave an engaging and informative presentation on the importance of wearing a helmet. Students in grades 2 through 8 watched a video chronicling the lives of athletes who survived accidents because they wore helmets. The message Nick sent to our students was “Helmets are cool.” Nick Fairall was a 2014 Olympic ski jumper and in 2015 he endured a severe spinal injury during a jump. Nick shared that his helmet saved his life. Whether you are ski jumping, mountain biking, skateboarding, or participating in any sport that helmets are recommended, please put one on and remember that HELMETS ARE COOL.
