Huge congrats to my West Coast buddy, Gail Williamson, who recently received the National Down Syndrome Congress (NDSC) President’s Award at the 2009 event held in Sacramento, CA. 

Gail, executive director of the Down Syndrome Association of Los Angeles (DSALA), which includes the terrific Heart & Halo Talent Division, was honored for her on-going work on behalf of those with Down syndrome. Her impressive contributions include working to ensure greater awareness, understanding and employment of actors with DS in the film and television industry. Gail’s son, Blair, is a successful working L.A. actor and has been featured on my blog in other posts. 

In case you want to get your Mickey groove on, Gail shares that next’s year’s conference will be held in Orlando, Florida.

Congratulations, Gail, on this well-deserved honor!
