Hundreds of sixth grade students at Farmingdale's Howitt Middle School recently absorbed lessons in overcoming adversity.

That's thanks to Lloyd Bachrach, a paralympian, entrepreneur and author, who shared his inspirational story as part of the motivational student "Yes You Can" program.

Bachrach, who was born with a congenital bone deficiency, also spoke with students about the importance establishing goals and helping others to succeed.
