2A Wednesday, July 7, 2010 Feather River Bulletin New set of wheels forJedidiah Dr. Sue Segura, principal of Quincy High School, was having an informal meeting in her office near the end of the school year with Cathy Rahmeyer and Kathy Gamble. They came up with the idea of getting a vehicle for Jedidiah Lusk and his family, so that he could travel comfortably and easily in his wheelchair. On the spur of the moment, they called Jack Brown of Quincy Auto Center and asked him if he could come down to the high school right then. He did, and a plan was hatched. Segura and the Quincy track team took to the stands at the Feather River College Rodeo (Jesse Segura is FRC rodeo's coach and Dr. Segura's son) and asked spectators to empty their pockets to help pay for a new vehicle for Jedidiah and his family. "A buck for a truck," Segura called it. Jedidiah's brother, Justin, who is on the QHS track team, and Austin Hagwood, student body president, were among those who enthusiastically collected $1,373 that evening. The van presented to the Lusk family was spurred by this donation and made possible by an extremely generous and anonymous donation. Here, Jedidiah's dad, Scott, pushes him up the ramp for the inaugural ride in his new van, while Justin and Dr. Segura look on. Hagwood, Rahmeyer and Brown were on hand to see him off.
