A Night To Remember

This past February, Shannon attended the Best Buddies Prom, a formal event for teens and adults with disabilities held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN. Shannon was escorted by Megan, her best buddy of five years.. The highlight of the evening for Shannon was getting to sign alongside country music star Brett Eldridge!

Shannon is one of 560 Tennesseans with disabilities who elect to self-directs her services.
