After seeing Shooting Beauty at the Best Buddies National Leadership Conference, Christine Allen, student and president of Best Buddies at CAB Calloway worked with Erin S ullivan, teacher and founder of the chapter, to bring Courtney and Shooting Beauty to their school. Courtney visited classes and presented the film which received a standing ovation from the 850 students and staff. It was a honor to be part of this event. Thank you CAB Calloway!
