Junior meets VP Biden

By Ben Dross, Staff Writer

Junior Zack Spielman met Vice President Joe Biden at the White House during a ceremony for the passing of the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act Feb. 10. The Act helps individuals with disabilities by giving them special ABLE accounts, which are similar to that of a college savings account or retirement accounts.

“It gives people with special needs and their family’s savings for the future,” said Spielman’s father Stuart Spielman, who helped in bringing the ABLE Act through congress. “The act gives people with disabilities more opportunities.”

March 3 also marked a day where many got together to “Spread the Word to End the Word,” pledging to end insults and raise awareness for those with mental disabilities.
