NHS PALS Club Students Promote Down Syndrome Awareness Month

Niceville High School PALS club brings together students with varying exceptionalities and creates an environment that focuses on ways they are alike, rather than their differences. In celebration of October being Down Syndrome Awareness Month, PALS teamed up with Edge Elementary Pre-K student, Phoebe Ferrell, to sponsor her at the “5th Annual Anchored Down with Love Buddy Walk” in DeFuniak Springs. Florida.  In addition to having lots of fun, PALs raised over $300 to expand services offered to individuals with Down Syndrome in Northwest Florida.

Thank you to everyone from Niceville High School and Edge Elementary School who helped make this event fun for everyone.  Pictured above are:  Annette Buckley, Pam Willard, Phoebe Ferrell (Edge), Max Warnecke, Myles Myers, Hannah Turley, Jasmine Rodden, Blake Johnson, Madison Childress, Raiven Bryant, Whitney Sikes, Marcus Wilson, Janice Massey, Steve Massey, Yasmeen Wilson, Selah Walker, along with NHS teachers Lainie Ferrell and Becca Childress,.
