NEMEDA’S Local Heroes Announced


VMI was proud to team with the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) and sponsor the 2014 Local Heroes Contest by donating their Toyota Northstar conversion. The contest has just ended and four lucky winners (with the help of their respective communities) each won a new wheelchair accessible van.

Courtney Boyll – a 3rd grade teacher from Moulton, Alabama – was the recipient of the VMI Toyota Northstar conversion van. She embodies the VMI spirit of ‘”Imagine Possibilities”.

“Do not give up on your dream of mobility freedom,” she said, “Keep believing. Because when you believe good things, all things are possible.”
