Lt. Brad Snyder – Stevenson University Convocation Address 2014
August 25, 2014

War Veteran and Paralympic Gold Medalist Brad Snyder spoke to incoming Stevenson students and their families on Thursday, August 21st at Stevenson’s Owings Mills gym. Snyder, who suffered complete vision loss after stepping on an IED while serving in an Afghanistan, touched on the need for both perspective and optimism to overcome life’s challenges—two elements that helped him rehab his injury and earn a gold medal at the 2012 Paralympics in London in the 400-meter freestyle swim event just one year to the day he lost his vision.
