Sororities Reject Student with Down Syndrome


Sororities Reject Student with Down Syndrome

Here’s a prime reason why October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month.  Ann Catherine Heigl has Down syndrome.  She graduated from high school and became a student of George Mason University through their LIFE program.  It’s one of only a few full-time college programs for people with intellectual challenges.  Sadly, every sorority at George Mason rejected Ann Catherine for membership.  Inviting her wouldn’t have been an act of charity.  She’s an engaging and accomplished student.  Ann Catherine made the University’s Division One cheerleading squad.  This rejection is an embarrassment and black mark on the reputation of George Mason University.  You and I must work together until all people with Down syndrome are loved and respected.
