When Forrest began at Kettle Run in 2012 he could not speak, stand up or walk unassisted. He could only indicate yes or no with one finger or two. He could not yet type to communicate. But Kettle Run embraced his journey and he embraced the goal to graduate from high school. He could not have accomplished this without the faith and support of his friends and fans. We hope that you will join us in the celebration, in person at Kettle Run High School or in spirit! Presents aren't necessary. Your love and support are the gifts he treasures.

The first workshop reading of Forrest's musical "44" was a huge success last Sunday. It is still so hard for Forrest to enunciate clearly and to project his voice. But with the encouragement and camaraderie of his cast members and Tom's coaching, he rose to the challenge and sang with gusto and joy. The song Forrest wrote for his amazing brother, Austin (performed by Nathan) brought tears of gratitude; tears for their special bond, Austin's unwavering devotion, and Forrest's hard won battles.
We are overwhelmed by the talent, generosity, and compassion of Tom and his team at A Place To Be. We hope that we can help give back by making the Kickstarter campaign for High Notes a huge success and sharing their amazing work with the world. Here are some images from "44" :
