Last week, Scott Badesch, the President and CEO of the Autism Society of America, braved the negative temperatures to come visit Alaska. His advice and guidance are invaluable as the Autism Society of Alaska embraces growth and change during strategic planning.
We enjoyed sharing with him some fun information about our great community such as plugging in vehicles and moose sightings.
Here are a couple comments that made us smile:
“The kids actually go outside for recess in this weather?”
“Won’t someone take your car if it’s auto started?”
We appreciate Badesch and local Fairbanks Mayor, Jim Matherly, for taking the time to sit down with us and discuss ways we can better reach out to those in our community and across the state. We love serving the state of Alaska and helping with the unique challenges our community faces.
Please reach out if you are interested in joining us on this journey. You can offer your skills and time in any capacity, big or small.
Also consider making a donation to help support autism education, awareness, advocacy, research, and most importantly, enable us to assist families living with autism.
