Streator HS student Theresa Benckendorf celebrated her class's graduation over the weekend and her speech was tops!
The student had some inspiring words for all who attended:
"Some people call me special because i have Down Syndrome. I want you to know that each of us is special. Having an extra chromosome does not define me."
Then, she ended things on a high note. Go Bulldogs!
