Mia Mumford, Buena senior and member of the homecoming court, Ian’s teacher Robin Fenstermacher, Ventura County Office of Education (VCOE) Special Education Teacher and Ian McKeever are as happy as can be.
Ian McKeever and his family dad Terry, mom Robin and sisters Sydnee and Kaia live in Ventura. Ian has been a Ventura County Office of Education (VCOE) student at Buena High School for 4 years with his teacher, Robin Fenstermacher. VCOE operates special education programs at schools throughout Ventura County. This is the first time a VCOE special education student has been crowned homecoming king or queen.
Ian is in a special day class at Buena High School with students with moderate/severe disabilities.
Ian is well-liked on campus and looks forward to social interaction with his peers and many peer T/A’s in class. A highlight of his senior year was being nominated and eventually crowned king at Buena’s 2016 Homecoming. The support and acceptance of Ian was apparent at the crowning during the Homecoming game on Friday night and the Homecoming dance on Saturday. He had a blast dancing all night long with a long line of enthusiastic girls. Ian’s next step after graduation in June is to continue his Post-Secondary education with the TEAMS program at Dorothy Boswell School in Ventura.
Thanks to the support and inclusion at Buena High School from staff and students, dreams can come true. Dream big…anything is possible!
