Greensburg — S.T.O.K. invites all parents and students who are part of an Individualized Education Program to attend the Annual S.T.O.K. Transition Fair, to be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., April 4, at Greensburg Community Church.

Approximately 20 vendors will be open during Parent Night.

For parent night, Kathy Riley of United Families will discuss how parents can advocate for their student and make sure that their child’s needs are met at school, in treatment and throughout life. Riley will speak from 6 to 6:30 p.m.

“We’re looking for more parents to participate this year,” said Chris Ramey, of DSI Services. He also mentioned that participating students will be kept busy throughout the following morning.

Vendors will be present to provide varying workshops for students from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., April 5. The vendors’ goal is to leave students knowing more than when they arrived.

Mancino’s Pizza will be provided as students listen to this year's guest speakers: Angel Schiering, Christel Murphey and Kathy Riley of United Families.

Angel and Christel will talk about how, as fraternal twins, their lives developed very differently due to their different decisions throughout high school and into early adulthood.

Ramey thanked Greensburg Community Church, DSI Services, ARC of Decatur County and One Community One Family.

Any questions can be directed to Chris Ramey at 812-614-3036, or at cramey@dsiservices.org.
