Best Buddies is a club devoted to helping students express themselves. It gives them the chance to be who they truly are without judgement and create bonds with their peers. The club strives to raise public awareness through activities and fundraisers. This inspiring club promotes true friendship by having the members spend time with their buddies during lunch in addition to doing activities outside of school.

 

The club advisor, Ms. Wittenberg, took the leadership position last school year. She voiced her thoughts on the position, stating, “I think it has helped me grow as a teacher.” She goes into depth about how it feels   being a part of something, not only on campus, but also on a state level. Ms. Wittenberg is proud of how rapid the Higley Best Buddies club has grown. Compared to the previous years the club has grown in size. Personally, Ms.Wittenberg believes the “Spread the Word to End the Word” event will be the most successful because anyone can attend. It’s a well known event, and it is very effective. The club members first go around school and essentially spread awareness.The goal is for members to educate people about how the use of the ‘r’ word has a negative impact on people with disabilities. This also can give buddies and peers the chance to bond even more than ever before, which positively influences everyone involved.

One of the responsibilities of a buddy is to complete recreational activities with their partner. Alexa Gawronski, a senior at Higley, says she “goes bowling at Flipside.” She loves to hang out with Paul, her buddy. Other buddies do similar activities; to be part of the club, it is expected that the members are active and put time and effort into their buddies. This is to ensure an unbreakable bond between the two.
