Meet Austin - a seven year old from Tea, SD. Austin lost his limbs just before his 3rd birthday due to a rare form of meningitits. In an effort to give this little boy a handicap accessible home - a group of individuals & businesses formed A Home for Austin! The home is being built this year by Lennox and Tea Area High School Students under the leadership of Paul Kruse, industrial technology teacher in Lennox.
