Streator HS Student Nails Her Graduation Speech

Streator HS student Theresa Benckendorf celebrated her class's graduation over the weekend and her speech was tops! 

The student had some inspiring words for all who attended:

"Some people call me special because i have Down Syndrome. I want you to know that each of us is special. Having an extra chromosome does not define me."

Then, she ended things on a high note. Go Bulldogs!
