In this edition of Schools Rule, FOX 47's Lora Painter found out how a local student gave a little boy the gift of mobility and self-confidence.

Chelsea Asquith, a 10th grader at Stockbridge High School, has a passion for science and her creativity and compassion lead her to inventing a one-handed fishing pole for the son of family friends. Little Ezra and his parents love fishing together, but he had a stroke early in life which resulted in him losing the function of his right arm. Ezra's challenges inspired Asquith to take action, using the skills she learned in her robotics and 3D printing classes.
