I asked them why, and it turns out, they will usually knock on our board member’s window in the back of the building after school. He will make funny faces […]

Sixty years ago, when Howard was 8 years old, there were no programs for special needs children like him.  He simply did not fit into the regular mold.   Unable to sit and learn like the other children, he could not keep up with the rest of the class.  His teacher stationed him in the “Dunce Chair” right next […]
