Quinn's story of inclusion (video) Thursday, March 21, 2013 by: SooToday.com Staff
Did you remember to paint your nails blue today?
earlier by SooToday.com, it's World Down Syndrome Day and we thought we'd share this video of a young man with Down Syndrome telling his own story and the importance of inclusion.
Quinn Pleau-MacWilliam, a Grade 12 student at St. Mary's College, was one of the winners in the Community Living Algoma's Inclusion Contest.
View the video above to check out what Quinn has to say about his personal experience of being included at the schools he attended in the Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board.

Quinn is a wonderful young man who I have had the pleasure of knowing through my place of employment. Congrats Quinn. His mum is a pretty special lady too.

Shame on Sault College for disallowing this brilliant kid to follow his dream, unreal. Keep up the great work Quinn.
