Department of Counseling Students Meet with Paralympic Gold Medalist McCoy

Graduate students enrolled in the Multicultural and Diversity Issues in Counseling class recently had the privilege of meeting with Dan McCoy, a member of the 2014 Paralympic Sled Hockey Team. Team USA won the Gold Medal with a 1-0 win over the host team Russia.

Dan was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. At the age of six, he began playing sled hockey and had a dream of one day being on the Olympic team.

He shared his life journey of growing up with a disability and his quest for the gold medal. His mother, Angela McCoy, also discussed her experiences as an advocate and parent of a child with a disability. It was an honor to have them at IUP.
