The Panhandle Down Syndrome Guild is teaming up with West Texas A&M University to support students who are committed to working with those with special needs.
The guild has presented a new scholarship for students that attend speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and education classes that will help disabled residents.
A minimum of $1,000 will be awarded annually to one or more qualified students.
Jay Campbell, one of the guild’s founders. “Therapists and teachers are the ones who show up. This is a way for us to give back to those who help our kids.”
