Buddy Spotlight: Noah & Joe
Go Joe! – Best Buddies Participant Cheers On BEST BUDDY at Baseball Game
Noah Schepman and Joe McClellan’s friendship is truly something special. This exceptional pair sheds light on the true power of friendship at an early age.
Joe first met Noah at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year at Riverdale. With it being Noah’s first year at Riverdale, he was a little nervous, but eager to learn more about his new classmates.
According to Noah’s mom, since their initial meet… Joe is all Noah can talk about. Noah is a regular at Joe’s baseball games where he can be heard shouting, “Go Joe!” from the crowd. The friendship is truly mutual, as Joe is also Noah’s biggest fan and supporter. In fact, one of Noah’s favorite memories of Joe was having his best friend visit him when he was in the hospital. For Christmas, Joe got Noah a stuffed Santa. The gift meant so much to Noah that he requested it has a place at the dinner table with his family.
We celebrate friendships like that of Joe and Noah because they exemplify exactly what our friendship program hopes to accomplish at such an early age.
