Marissa Rogers, a senior at Jasper High School, has been paralyzed from the waist down since birth. Her dream, like every teenager is to be able to drive a car.  Marissa, and her family would like everyone to vote for her to win a modified car on the Ellen Degeneres Show. This car will be handicapped-accessible so it will be possible for Marissa to live her dream of driving. To vote this month and next month just simply go to and click on the drop-down menu “Show info” at the top of the page. Then click on “Nominate a deserving person in need” to get the voting form. Photo must be attached.  Also, today (Wednesday) in homeroom students will be able to sign a petition that will be sent to Ellen.  Marissa is such a sweet and deserving girl and I hope each and everyone of you go vote for her. Thanks.
