Katie Horton, president of the Overton Chapter said she and her dated “both thought that tonight was indescribable. To see their smiling faces makes all we do worth while. Best Buddies is changing the world one buddy at al time!”

Before the Best Buddies arrived at the arena, the was make-up and dress up at Overton, where great fun was had getting ready for the prom.

Since 1995, Best Buddies High Schools has paired students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in one-to-one friendships with high school students. In the past, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have not had the opportunity to have friends outside of their own special education classroom.

By introducing Best Buddies into public and private high schools, participants are crossing the invisible line that too often separates those with disabilities from those without.

Best Buddies High Schools also offers students a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills. With the support of school faculty and Best Buddies staff, students lead and direct the chapters in their schools.
