His face was highlighted on the big screen in Times Square, speaking volumes about the capabilities of kids with Down syndrome.
Souderton Area High School junior Kevin Lezynski is an accomplished Boy Scout, manager of his school’s lacrosse team, and active participant in the musical and men’s chorus.
On Saturday, a photo of him — decked out in his Boy Scout uniform — and his dad, Jerry, made Souderton and the world proud.
“It shows what Kevin can do, that he’s capable of earning all those merit badges,” his mom, Nancy Lezynski, said in a Souderton Independent report by Bob Keeler.
The special occasion was part of the annual National Down Syndrome Society slideshow in Times Square.
“The featured photographs highlight children, teens, and adults with Down syndrome, reminding the world in a very big way about the contributions and milestones of people with Down syndrome,” an NDSS statement said.
“These collective images promote the value, acceptance, and inclusion of people with Down syndrome, which is the mission of NDSS.”
