The Star Tribune article “Proving his point: Blind hiker Mike Hanson demonstrated grit and independence on the Appalachian Trail and earned a CEO position as a result” on February 2, 2011, featured law graduate Mike Hanson (‘05).  The article talks about Mike's seven month hike through the Appalachian Trail, while being guided by global positioning software. Mike concluded his trip after being offered an opportunity to "join a start-up company to provide real-time navigation to persons with visual impairments."  Congratulations Mike!
