Greenwich High School has changed for the better in assisting the handicapped

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

In 2010, I wrote to you after my brother’s graduation from Greenwich High School. On what was supposed to be a wonderful day my family instead encountered extreme barriers relating to handicapped accessibility for my sister at the ceremony.

But at this year’s GHS graduation, I brimmed with pride as my sister walked across the stage to receive recognition for her hard work over the past four years and I am pleased to announce that the handicapped accessibility at this ceremony was exemplary.

From the ample handicapped parking in the theater lot, to the golf cart shuttles staffed with courteous drivers to the rows of ground-level seating with backs on the chairs, the ceremony was utterly accessible to anyone and everyone who wanted to attend.

I mentioned in my original letter that most people don’t notice the details of handicapped accessibility, but for the few of us who do notice, these details make a world of difference.

I’d like to publicly thank the GHS staff and the Greenwich Police Department for giving us the opportunity to fully enjoy the day like everyone else.
