WSU ROAR – Responsibility, Opportunities, Advocacy and Respect with Lisa Henniger

Lisa Henniger is joining me to talk about Washington State University’s ROAR program, which supports higher education for the disabled and neurodiverse. Lisa’s son Evan, who has down syndrome, has always wanted to go to WSU and follow in the footsteps of his entire family. Evan was among the WSU ROAR program’s first cohort in 2018 which has been a dream-come-true.
