Anita is a sweet 18-year-old young lady who is a student at North Stanly High School in New London, NC. Her peers adore her and find her fun-loving spirit magnetic! When the school’s Jr. Dream Team needed to identify a Dream recipient, they enthusiastically chose Anita.
Anita lives with Down syndrome and, despite the challenges that may pose, she absolutely shines when running track or playing basketball for the Special Olympics. In addition to her athletic endeavors, Anita gets a thrill watching NASCAR races on Sunday. She is proud of her miniature car collection and loves to pull for the #48 car and its driver… Jimmie Johnson.
Anita is thrilled to have the support of the NSHS Jr. Dream Team and they are working hard to make her sports dream come true – to meet, none other than, Mr. Jimmie Johnson!
