Congratulations to MHS teacher Jennifer Yocum, recognized as Best Buddies Pennsylvania's High School Advisor of the Year! Meredith Brooks, Lead Program Manager at Best Buddies Pennsylvania headquarters noted that Ms. Yocum "...is a dedicated advisor who puts the mission of Best Buddies before many things in their life. On a daily basis, she makes sure that all of their students are happy, feel included part of that is being the backbone to the Best Buddies chapter at their school. They believe in the mission so much that she even took time out of their summer to attend our annual Leadership Conference to learn more about how big our organization is and the impact we really make all over the world. Every time I visit this chapter, I am impressed with what is accomplished as well as how much the students love and admire their advisor. I am always filled with motivation when I see the strong and natural friendships that are created at this school and how their entire school accepts them along with their community.
One of her students said, "Ms. Yocum has gone above and beyond for this club, I don’t know where we would be without her. She puts everything into this club and to help her students. She is the heart of this club and so deserves to be advisor of the year.” (Ms. Yocum is pictured on the left.)
Congratulations, Ms. Yocum! Methacton PRIDE!
