Continued Opportunities for Inclusion: Advancing Students Toward Education and Employment at Minot State University
This Think College Story from September 2017 features two college students making history. Holly Sheetz and Joe McNeil were the first students with intellectual disability (ID) to participate in the commencement ceremony at Minot (North Dakota)State University. Students have been attending the ASTEP program since 2011, but this was the first time students with ID were included at commencement. Through mentorship of and interviews with Holly and Joe, staff from the ASTEP program share many of the students' experiences, memories, and dreams in this Think College Story.
