This year’s Illinois Pageant Keynote Speaker address will be given by a very inspiring man who has shattered many glass ceilings. Coming all the way from Evansville, Indiana, Andy Imlay is a very loud and proud activist for the disability community. This is evident in his blog/website PalsyPositive.com. There you can read a little more about Andy, hear some of his previous podcasts, and keep up with his hectic schedule.
Along with being an Easter Seals Ambassador, Andy is beginning to develop a long list of credits behind him including a prominent role in the Nike FlyEase commercial; a shoe made for athletes with disabilities.
Andy performs a stand-up comedy routine from his wheelchair. He calls it “Inspiration/Humor through my battle with Cerebral Palsy!”
By the time he visits us, Andy will be a newlywed, just married to his beautiful bride Megan at the Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL. Did we forget to mention he’s a HUGE Superman fan?
Be sure to get you tickets to the pageant soon! You do NOT want to miss Andy’s Keynote Address…ahem…comedy routine.
