Montreat, a North Carolina NAIA school, has come to the support of senior goalie Howard Fisher
, who was diagnosed with a rare and serious disorder while
visiting his native Jamaica over the holidays. It isn't the first time the school has come to Johnson's aid.
"We really are at our best," Montreat chaplain Steve Woodworth told
the Asheville Citizen-Times, "when one of our members is at their worst."
The school paid for teammate Stephen Jackson
to fly to Jamaica to be at Fisher's side, and a medical flight has been arranged through Wings of Eagles for
Fisher to fly to Duke University Medical Center for treatment.
When Fisher and several other Jamaicans were the victims of an education scam, Montreat created an International Student Aid
fund to allow them to stay enrolled.
