Niceville High School PALS is a club that brings together students with varying exceptionalities and creates an environment that focuses on ways we are alike, rather than our 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.  In addition to having lots of fun, we were able to raise over $300 to expand services offered to individuals with Down syndrome in Northwest Florida.

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