WHS Student writes Proclamation to Governor Holcomb

WHS senior Paige Byrd has many food allergies, and is working with a organization called FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) to get Food Allergy Awareness Week recognized in every state.

Paige wrote and sent a proclamation to Governor Holcomb and he chose her proclamation! "I did this because I wanted to advocate for myself and others with food allergies," Paige said.

Governor Holcomb signed her proclamation and proclaimed Food Allergy Awareness Week in Indiana as May 8th-14th. Congratulations!
