FALCONER – A group dedicated to highlighting special education students furthered their efforts on Monday with a special training.
Exceptional Stars Athletics hosted a training at The Falcons Nest on Monday night for the “buddies” program.
Terri Johnson and Beth Jermain of The Resource Center provided an hour-long training with the 22 buddies who work with the program.
The group’s founder, Rich Bianco, says the he wants his buddies to be more comfortable and confident when working with special need athletes.
“Terri and Beth were fantastic. They gave our kids a lot of helpful insight and guidance. This is only going to make our program even better,” said Bianco. “A year and a half ago, we started with eight buddies at our first baseball game. Tonight, we trained 22 kids. We’re very proud of these kids and what they do for the athletes of Exceptional Stars.”
