Natalie Harris, Rockwall-Heath High School’s Best Buddies 2015-2016 President, traveled to Indiana University to participate in the annual Leadership Conference. The conference was held July 17th -20th teaching students how to improve their chapter as well as how to give community awareness of the program and its mission.
At the conference Natalie Harris accepted an award on behalf of Rockwall-Heath High School for being the best chapter in the state of Texas! Natalie received a plaque and got to meet Anthony Kennedy Shriver, founder and chairman of Best Buddies International.
Natalie Harris says, “Our mission is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and development disabilities.”
We look forward to hearing more stories and achievements from the Best Buddies program for the 2015-2016 school year.
