WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Children at a Wilmington elementary school learned they can do anything they set their minds to.

Billy Eno is confined to a wheelchair, but Thursday he showed the students at Bradley Creek Elm. that his disability has not held him back.

He demonstrated how he is able to play wheelchair tennis, basketball, and pool.

Eno's visit is part of the school's "Can do Kid" theme for the month.

Throughout the month, students learned about trying hard, overcoming obstacles, setting and achieving goals, persevering during difficult times, and becoming successful.
