Ellie Driscoll '25 and Jillian Farley '25  attended the Best Buddies Leadership Conference in Bloomington Indiana.
They spent four days in sessions and celebrations with over 1,600 student and community leaders from all across the world. They participated in different trainings to better their leadership skills, build networks, and create a more inclusive environment at school and in the community. As Delaware's youngest student leaders, Ellie and Jillian won the Chapter President Community Involvement award for all of the work they do for Best Buddies both at WFS and for the organization as a whole.

From the Best Buddies website, "Founded in 1989 by Anthony K. Shriver, Best Buddies is a vibrant organization that has grown from one original chapter to nearly 3,000 chapters worldwide, positively impacting the lives of over 1.3 million people with and without IDD. Best Buddies programs engage participants in each of the 50 states and in 49 countries around the world."
