EKS was a fearless and inspirational leader who advocated and strove to improve the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. Her vision for change created a social movement which is still growing, Thank you for your persistence, love, and dedication. As a special educator, Special Olympics coach, and Project Unify Club adviser, I strive to follow in your footstep and continue your movement towards respect, friendship, inclusion, and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities. Currently, I am using your story as my Educational Leadership MA project and reading about your works has inspired me to work harder towards fulfilling your vision! Love, serve, and inspire!
