Will's World: An Exceptional Young Man as Seen Through the Eyes of His Family and Friends: This book is about William "Will" Glenn Hurt, who is now twenty-two years of age, a citizen of Burkesville, KY, whose fame is spread far beyond the borders of Cumberland County, KY.
As a young child, he was diagnosed as having atypical autism.
Later, this diagnosis was confirmed, and a completed IQ test determined his IQ to be 52.
None of this was a deterrent to Will or his family. He was already well on his way to becoming a technology genius but, more importantly, to leaving every person he met with a smile on their face and a new determination in their heart.
Will is a welcome volunteer in justice centers and courthouses around the State of Kentucky, the local school system, chambers of commerce, administrative offices of the courts, judicial conferences, and any place else he is invited.
Will has two concerns: when he has to retire and the very rare day when he may have a vacancy on his volunteer calendar.if there is anyone that would like a copy please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or they can text me at 270-433-1143. Hard Cover $16. Softcover $11.00 - Thanks to Will Hurt for sharing his wonderful story. - CM
