GPA crane operator, partner facilitate outdoor activities for physically challenged individuals
For nearly two decades, Kerry Terrell and Jason Beard have been heading out before the sun rises to stake out a prime turkey hunting spot. But, there was a time in Beard’s life when he wondered if he’d still be able to pursue his passion. Beard’s injuries from a diving accident fractured his vertebrae, making him a quadriplegic.
Terrell, a crane operator at Georgia Ports Authority, recalls the first time he heard about the man who would become one of his best friends. Terrell, an award-winning turkey caller, was participating in a competition when he was asked to help a wheelchair-bound man call in a turkey.
