By the Skin of Her Teeth

By the Skin of Her Teeth

Over the last year, I’ve had the good fortune to meet multiple young people that are doing amazing things with the use of only one arm, like baseball players Luke Terry (TN) & Keenan Briggs (KY). Recently, although I’ve not met her personally, I became aware of a young lady, Faith Oakley, a high school student from Bethlehem High School in Bardstown, KY, that is a force to be reckoned with on the archery range.  She, too, has the use of only one arm, but uses her teeth to pull the bow.  (Click here to see her in action). I’m hopeful at some point in the future, I’ll have a chance to sit down and have a conversation and hear her story in person, but for now, let’s cheer her on from afar and hope she is able to move from 9th in the National Archery in the Schools Program World Tournament (High School Division) to a top 5 finish next year.
