Madison County’s Hannah Baird will be honored with a 2011 Yes I Can! Award from the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) later this month.
The 21-year-old Madison County resident was born with Down Syndrome and has “overcome great obstacles to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, inspiring people across her community,” CEC officials said.
Each year, CEC honors 27 students with disabilities who have excelled. Awards are given in nine categories: academics, arts, athletics, community service, employment, extracurricular activities, independent living skills, self-advocacy and technology. Baird earned distinction in the “extracurricular activities” category.
Hannah Baird was the 2010 Madison County High School Homecoming Queen.
