Meet the Kentucky Student CEC Officers!
|President: Braiden Abbott||Hello! My name is Braiden Abbott and I am your 2018-2019 President for the Kentucky Student Council of Exceptional Children. My ultimate goal is to be a guiding light for students and specialize in assisting them to find their own career paths just as my teachers have done for me. As for now, I study both Special Education (LBD) and Elementary Education at Western Kentucky University. I also work as a Community Living Support person for individuals with Autism. I am ecstatic to be on the executive board for student council this year. By being on this board, I hope to spread positive and supportive advice to other pre-service educators!|
