AIM-Higher 2019 Community Service Project:
This year AIM-Higher is partnering with the Exceptional Theater Company (ETC) which is designed for young adults with special needs. We will meet Christine, who is in her 20's, and was on a heart transplant list. She often talks to groups about her experience with being ill, staying in hospitals and undergoing operations. We will learn to sign a song and perform it as a group with Christine. For more information on ETC, visit https://exceptionaltheatercompany.org/
