We celebrate with ACCE student Allyson Cameron for her distinguished award that was given at the Council for Exceptional Children banquet on October 24.
ACCE stands for academics, community, career development and employment. It's a post secondary program in partnership between Easterseals Arkansas and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
"Allyson is an outstanding student in the ACCE program because she is not only eager to learn, but she also is excited about the new skills she is developing to help her in life and in a career," says Kristina Jones, ACCE coordinator.
"She is helpful to other students in the class that need more time to process or assistance with the computer lab. She assists a fellow student in a wheelchair so that he can get to inaccessible areas in public. She is caring and enjoys volunteering to help people in the community. She sets an example for other students in her ability to manage her time and be organized. Allyson is an outstanding student of ACCE and she exemplifies the perseverance to pursue her dreams."
