The Best Buddies Chapter at Belmont University hosted an event on Oct. 22 to welcome new members. Best Buddies is an international organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships between persons with and without disabilities. This is the second year for the Belmont Chapter. Best Buddies officers, Cait Walker (President, sport science major) and Azad Karim (Membership Coordinator, biology major) with faculty advisor, education Department Chair Sally Barton-Arwood, welcomed our newest Belmont and community buddies at Centennial Park. The group participated in the annual Buddy Walk sponsored by the Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee.
