GREENFIELD, NH - During his graduation ceremony, using his Dynavox communication device, Crotched Mountain School student Miles Forma addressed friends, family and the staff as he thanked Crotched Mountain for all that was done to help him. Now, he will move on with a clear vision for his future.

Miles has already raised nearly $7500 for his efforts as part of his passion toward educating and networking with others who share similar concerns.
