RES students will model in the National Best Buddies fashion show this November

At GMSD, we are incredibly proud to house many unique friendships. One such friendship has recently been recognized for its particular sweetness this past week.

Riverdale students Noah Schepman and Joe McClellan were highlighted on the national Best Buddies website for a spotlight because of their amazing and supportive bond. Best Buddies is an organization designed to encourage friendships between those with disabilities and fellow students, and in the case of Noah and Joe, they have truly created a perfect pair.


Noah frequently attends Joe’s baseball games and provides an encouraging word, while Joe also supports Noah any way he can, whether that be on a hospital visit or in the school hallways. We are so proud to celebrate, alongside Best Buddies, the fun and compassionate friendship this pair shares.

Joe and Noah are even taking this special bond beyond Germantown on the road. The two boys were asked to participate in the Best Buddies Gala & Fashion Show in Houston, TX, which showcases bonds like Joe and Noah’s and raises money for the organization’s good work, this coming November 17th.

We are so incredibly thrilled that these boys are being granted such a spectacular opportunity and could not be prouder of the friendship they share. Great work guys!
