In a recent article on Tallahassee.com, Dr. Harding was mentioned by Blake Dowling of Aegis Business Technologies.
“I first met Dr. James Harding several years ago and we have collaborated on some columns in regards to assistive technology for the disabled community and more recently working with some of his students at Aegis. It will be hard to summarize Harding’s accomplishments. He is a teacher at FSU, husband, author, two time U.S. Presidential appointee, speaker, advocate, serving FAAST, the Delta Airlines Disability Advisory Board, The Florida Network on Disabilities, and so many more. The man is relentless in his quest to advocate, assist and give back. A two-time quadriplegic, Harding survived a brutal attack as a teenager, and instead of changing his hopes and dreams, he found the courage and drive to overcome profound challenges. Earning master and doctorate degrees, graduating from Leadership Tallahassee and Leadership Florida, and co-founding the Florida Disability Mentoring Day – considered the best in the country – JR Harding not only reached, but exceeded his dreams.” – Blake Dowling
