A local high school cheerleader will be featured in a video presentation that will be played on a giant billboard in Times Square this weekend.

Marlee Kale is 17 years old, lives in Hickory, goes to Stephens High School, and has Down Syndrome.  Marlee Kale’s mom and dad said the National Down Syndrome Society sends out an email every year about the Times Square video presentation. They submitted Marlee’s photo and she was selected out of thousands of submissions.

What an amazing way to kick off Down Syndrome Awareness Month!  The featured photographs highlight children, teens, and adults with Down syndrome working, playing, and learning alongside friends and family. I can only imagine how excited Marlee is about this event! I love this story!
