Morehead State student Trevor Potter still feels the impact of falling from Lockegee Rock three years ago.

Potter fell the 40 feet in September 2016, from where most people climb and stand to view the landscape. He impacted near a pointed stump that could have ended his life.

“It’s crazy to think that in September it will make three years,” Potter said. “A pointed stump was really close to my body that my friends say I easily could have landed on.”

Potter was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center where he was treated for a concussion, a fractured arm, along with damage to his sinus and skull.

Potter is currently studying biomedical sciences and said the injuries from his fall have taught him a lot over the past three years.

“The fall has taught me to be extremely thankful for everything. My awesome family, my friends, and my life.”

Currently, Potter is a member of the Honors Program, the recruitment chair for Theta Chi and the Vice President of Programming for the Interfraternity Council.
