Pictured at left, Karen Willis, 17, has been busy this spring raising awareness about autism. This cause is close to her heart since she has the mildest form, Asperger’s Syndrome, herself. She researched, wrote and delivered two speeches during April, Autism Awareness Month. One of these speeches resulted in coverage in the Millbrook Independent, Prattville Progress, Millbrook Progress and Montgomery Parents magazine. Also this spring Karen has participated a mission trip to Palmer Children’s Home in Columbus, Mississippi, and will set out to help flood victims in Iowa City, Iowa, with her church in May. She will begin job training this summer working toward a position in data entry. Karen is a resident of Millbrook.

Congratulations to all these outstanding seniors!
