WSAW.com: A student in Spencer is able to get around a little easier thanks to the help of Spencer School District staff, Northcentral Technical College and his family.

Noel is a student at Spencer Elementary and was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that limits his mobility.

Students made a self-motorized car just for Noel that has unique switches designed to help him get around easier.

“It gives Noel the opportunity to move independently and explore. It really helps prepare him for more advanced mobility such as a power wheelchair later on,” said Kristin Jacobson, Assistant Director of Special Education.
