A Monarch Voice That Hears No Struggle

By Lucas Thompson | Editor-in-Chief Valley Star Student Nespaper
Despite suffering from cerebral palsy, Valley Student Gary Teague never loses sight of his goals.
Anyone who sits down and talks with Valley College student and 2011 baseball public address announcer Gary Teague, will find it difficult not to crack a smile. Not because it is soon apparent that the life-threatening disease Teague suffers from has affected his entire life and all of his mannerisms, but because Teague's confidence overshadows his handicap, and he smiles every day … no matter what.
"It's kind of refreshing isn't it?" said Dale Beck, Valley sports information director and football and basketball public address announcer. "He's a real person who just enjoys life and enjoys other people. When you're talking to Gary, there's no hidden agenda."
