Now the holder of two uni- versity degrees and a happy optimistic outlook on life, de- spite being seriously crippled with cerebral palsy and near- ly blind, she is proving right the doctor who saw hope for her 23 years ago. Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Ponech, formerly of Lethbridge, G i n n y Lynn. weighed less than a pound when delivered by Dr. Jesse Bigelow in Lethbridge. For the first two years of her life, specialists kept telling her parents to put her her away in a home. But Dr. Bigelow saw the gleam in Ginny's eye and told the Pon- ech's to keep hoping. Ginny was then moved to Montreal where it was found that she had cerebral palsy. Science fair questioned By TINA HOLE Various activities go on out- side of school, still including school participation. One of these activities is the science fair. The science fair is a good idea, but that is all. In order for everyone to get something out of it, there must be a bet- ter understanding of what the science fair actually is. Students entering should re- alize their project choice is to be one they are interested in and will research and experi- ment themselves. Too often, students get their ideas from older brothers, sis- s ters or fathers and have them I do the majority of the work. If those in charge of the sci- I ence fair had better communi- cation xvith the science teach- ers, they could get across a more meaningful interest to the students. The science fair can open va- rious paths and future oppor- tunities for students of all ages. The money and numerous hours spent on these projects ends with full satisfaction on its completion. Ginny attended crippled children's schools until Grade 3 and. after a long hard fight, she was allowed to at- tend "normal schools." Being very independent, and not wanting any favors. Ginny had to work hard to keep herself in the "n o r m a 1" "schools." She obtained her Cegree in psychology from Carlton Uni- versity in Ottawa. But, in order to carry on to her ter's in social work. Ginny was forced to go across the country to the University of British Columbia in Vancou- ver. She explained she had ap- plied to many eastern univer- sities but was refused admit- tance because of her handi- cap. ''Most people look at me and see only what I am not able to she said. Even though she was fin- allv accepted in British Col- umbia, she had to send a de- tailed resume to the univer- sity, explaining all the things she could do and her meth- od of doing them. It was a bard adjust- ment for G i n n y. moving across the country but she "believes "learning doesn't just come from books.'' While in university. Ginny had students read to her and used tape-recorders for her interviews. She developed her own svstem of learning.
