Flint injured in skydiving accident

On a skydiving adventure, Mr. Flint broke a vertebrae in his back when landing from his 5th skydive last week.  He underwent surgery and has to wear a back brace.

He is scheduled to return to school Nov. 9.

Per usual, Flint is in great spirits and can’t wait to share his stories and new knowledge.

 

From Flint:
