Ten who made a difference

Seamus Casey is one of the News Record's Ten Who Made a Difference in 2018. "If we really want to better our lives, we have to better the lives of the people around us," Casey said.

Thunder Basin High School sophomore Seamus Casey will have a documentary about him released Friday on the Disney Plus streaming service.

It is the 13th episode of the “Marvel’s Hero Project” docu-series, which highlights kids from around the country who are doing things to help others.

Casey started a campaign to raise $65,000 to donate to Folds of Honor, a charity that provides educational scholarships to the families of military service members who have died or become disabled while serving.

He used rock climbing, cycling and public speaking to reach his goal in November.

There is a trailer of Casey’s documentary online on Marvel Entertainment’s YouTube page that shows him climbing Devils Tower and talking about how he plans to join the military.
