Junior Kevin Olguin and sophomore Nikia Pope attempt to unwrap Starbursts while wearing gloves. This activity was meant to simulate what it would be like to have a lack of fine motor skills.

Best Buddies President Callie Coulter, junior, and Vice President Hannah Soyer, senior, spoke to health classes on Thursday, March 14. Students watched a presentation and videos on how students with disabilities are “more alike then different.” Coulter and Soyer also provided simulation activities such as trying to speak while eating marshmallows, wearing gloves and trying to unwrap a starburst, and wearing visibility impairment goggles and trying to give someone a high five.
