You can read about it in the Punxsy Spirit.
We at The Arc of Jefferson and Clearfield Counties could not be more proud of this accomplishment. Jennifer is a valued board member in our organization. Jennifer is one of two self advocates we have sitting on our board. We know that we can always count on her to volunteer to do things for us that she is so good at, like talking to others and getting the word out about our programs and events.
Jennifer has Down Syndrome yes, but Jennifer has amazing Abilities to help others. Thank you Punxsutawney for recognizing this and for giving Jennifer the chance to shine as Woman of the Year. What an encouragement for others with disabilities to know that Jennifer Roberts made such a difference to her community and was acknowledged for it.
CONGRATULATIONS Jennifer!!!! We could not think of anyone more deserving of this recognition.
