Bowie Buddies originated in 2004. A group of students came to me and asked if we could start a club that teamed up "my" students with the life skills students. Of course, I agreed. We all thought that we would make a difference in their lives, but little did we know, they would be changing our lives. This is an amazing group of young people that give of themselves daily to others. They eat lunch with their "buddies", write cards to their "buddies". They also, with PRIDE, introduce their "buddies" to their friends in the hall.
