By Jenine Shereos

Earlier this month, Gateway Artist Fran Brown had the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion at her Alma Mater, Cotting School in Lexington Massachusetts.

The “Visions of the Future” panel was held on Wednesday, April 2nd in the Cotting School auditorium. The visiting panel of alumni and other adults with disabilities shared with current students their experiences with the transition process, independent living and working, post-secondary education, transportation and recreation and other aspects of life after high school.

Fran gave a wonderful power point presentation with many photos about her life after graduating from Cotting in 2005.  The presentation included her many hobbies, adventures with family and friends, expreiences living in a group home, her life-long love of art, and her current employment and success as an exhibiting artist at Gateway Arts!
