Go, Auburn go!

Auburn playing tennisOn Thursday, October 25, Easter Seals welcomed Auburn Smith from Daytona Beach, Florida as OUR 2013 Youth Representative. Auburn is 15 years old and has been receiving services at Easter Seals Volusia & Flagler Counties since she was seven months old.

Auburn is a nationally ranked wheelchair tennis player, and she and her parents point to the value of Easter Seals early intervention and inclusive childcare services for helping her be the successful athlete she is today. Auburn continues to receive physical therapy here at Easter Seals Volusia & Flagler Counties to improve her balance.

An article about Auburn in the Daytona Beach News-Journal quotes Auburn’s proud father, Jimmy Smith, “We are very proud of her and all the things she’s accomplished,” he says, adding that he is also proud of the way “everything has worked out in her life and how Easter Seals has helped us from the very beginning since she was a baby.”

Here at Easter Seals Volusia & Flagler Counties, we are all very proud of Auburn and her family, too. Go, Auburn, go!
