Ohio girl wins award for academic success despite Down syndrome

Sarah Wilkins, 14, has Down syndrome, but has nonetheless made the honor roll at her Ohio school. This helped win her a CEC Yes I Can award for academic achievement. "She's smart as a tack, witty and fun," said Sarah's special-education teacher, Leigh Salsbury. "Sarah is living proof that you can triumph over anything." Lancaster Eagle-Gazette (Ohio)
