This past April, Ben Driscoll, President of Bedford High School Best Buddies, and his chapter from Bedford High School, won the #1 Best Buddies chapter in Massachusetts. On May 30, LABBB students joined in the celebration at Bedford High School and Lauren Potter, star of the TV show Glee, and Antony Shriver, came to Bedford High School to recognize the BHS Chapter. See wicked local on-line article here.
During this celebration, Anthony Shriver spoke to the BHS Best Buddies and the LABBB students about this achievement and the mission of Best Buddies. He also stated that Bedford High School Best Buddies chapter will now be considered for the #1 chapter in the nation. Mr. Shriver told the story about Ben, upon hearing this news, had to wake up at 3:00am to make a video to submit the next day for BHS to be considered for this prestigious honor.
