Ivy Power


Ivy Power

More individuals with Down syndrome are being mainstreamed into society.  This includes secondary education that increases their options for employment.  This fall Ivy Tech Community College in Indiana is launching a pilot program called Ivy Power for students with Down syndrome.  Gabby Campbell and Treasure Lehman are excitedly looking forward to the classes.  “I jumped up and down,” said Treasure.  Gabby was certain of her success, stating, “I make friends wherever I go.”  Each student will have a mentor in the classroom, and I expect the regular students will learn as much from the experience as the Ivy Power kids.  Gabby’s interested in English and business classes.  Treasure hopes to land a job at a day care or preschool.  Let’s pray for them both.
