The Arc Mid-South
23rd Annual Awards and Benefit Gala

Strengthening The Arc Mid-South Through Superheroes

FedEx Senior Vice President Shannon Brown, WMC-TV Chief Meteorologist Ron Childers, Probate Judge Kathleen Gomes, and cityCURRENT CEO Jeremy Park received community recognition awards when The Arc Mid-South held its 23rd Annual Awards and Benefit Gala on Oct. 13.

“All four honorees exemplify our gala theme this year, ‘Strengthening The Arc Mid-South Through Superheroes,’ ” said Carlene Leaper, executive director. “Their dedication to our community and partnership with The Arc Mid-South has helped us achieve significant milestones on behalf of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”

Founded in 1950, the Arc Mid-South is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit agency that provides family support and advocacy, career development and job placement services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, such as autism. The agency was instrumental in starting the first special education classes in Memphis and Shelby County schools as well as group homes and the Adult Activity Center now known as Shelby Residential and Vocational Services (SRVS).
