Washington-Lee High School’s Best Buddies Club received the James B. Hunter Human Rights Award in Arlington, VA on Dec. 13, 2012. Best Buddies Club is a student driven organization that bridges the social gap between students with and without intellectual or physical disabilities by creating true friendships and the acceptance of differences. Although just two years old, the club has been named one of its best chapters by Best Buddies International. Best Buddies, founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, today has chapters in 1,500 schools across the globe. The Washington-Lee chapter holds events throughout the year that offer a safe place for everyone to enjoy the benefits of being a High School student. The James B. Hunter Human Rights Award is sponsored by the Arlington Human Rights Commission.
