Welcome to Eliza's College Pride! Team Page.  As many of you may know - from the moment Eliza graduated from high school in June of 2010, she wanted to attend college.  Little did she know what lay in store for her in merely trying to take a college class at her local university.  Since being removed from her ceramics class she has:  had a documentary, "Hold My Hand", made about her; has gone on to speak locally and nationally on why she wants to go to college; and has visited and interviewed at colleges across the country throughout this past year.  She (and we!) are happy to report that she has been accepted and is very excited to have the opportunity to attend Highline Community College in Des Moines, Washington, starting this fall where she will be able to take classes right along side of her peers! She is thrilled and has subsequently revised her Step Up Walk team from last year's "Dream Team!" to this year's "College Pride!" 

In preparation for her transition to college, Eliza has been living in her own apartment, getting the hang of cooking for herself, navigating the city bus to get where she needs to go, continuing to do public speaking and working for several local businesses including doing volunteer work for the Down Syndrome Association of Southern Oregon. 

Eliza invites each of you to join her in helping make a difference in the lives of people with Down syndrome by giving to her COLLEGE PRIDE! Step Up team and by coming out and walking in the 2012 STEP UP FOR DOWN SYNDROME WALK!!!! 

While Eliza will not be attending the walk this year because she will BE IN COLLEGE! she none the less will have a team, complete with cardboard cut out of ELIZA who will certainly be walking with us in SPIRIT!  

Thanks for your support!     

Eliza, Deb and Ron
