Read this press release from The League for People with Disabilities:

BALTIMORE, MD – The PaL Partnership, a volunteer program created by Park School students at The League for People with Disabilities, will be recognized by the Baltimore Ravens with its inaugural 2014-15 season “Honor Rows” award during the team’s opener Sunday, September 7.

The PaL (Park and League) Partnership is one of a handful of youth volunteer initiatives to be selected for the honor from among hundreds of volunteer groups nominated from throughout the state of Maryland. Nominated by The League and chosen by the Baltimore Ravens along with representatives from M&T Bank and the Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism, it is one of the highest honors bestowed on a volunteer youth group state-wide.

The youth-run leadership program, founded by Park student Drew Meyer with fellow students Alex Kalvar, Matt Abrams, Jeff Jordan, Jason Gelblum, Matt Keiser, Alex Wetzler, and Jack Sheehy, with supervision from Park School Assistant Athletic Director Dia Clark ’06, was chosen for one of the prestigious Baltimore Ravens awards for its year-long commitment to participants (adults with disabilities) at The League. The students have volunteered at The League, advocated for people with disabilities, and raised more than $10,000 to create a scholarship to the League’s Camp Greentop in western Maryland.
