Buddy Spotlight: Livi Aldrich Receives “Legacy” Award at 2017 Best Buddies Memphis Gala
Livi Aldrich has been a part of the Best Buddies School Friendship program since the third grade. This exceptional young woman is a shining example of how Best Buddies has the ability to transform the lives and create leaders.
Livi exemplifies grace, humility, love, and kindness to her inner core. On the outside, she stands strong as an independent, motivated and strong individual. Livi gives much of the credit for the woman she is today to her late mother, Julie Aldrich.
“My mom taught me how to love. She taught me how to cook the best spaghetti. She was the best teacher at Madonna Learning Center. She loved my family and she was the best mom ever.” – Livi Aldrich
In honor of the life of Julie Aldrich led and her legacy of caring for, loving and enhancing the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Best Buddies in Memphis established the annual “Legacy Award in honor of Julie Aldrich.”
On Friday, August 25, 2017, the Inaugural Best Buddies Legacy Award was presented to none other than Julie’s precious daughter, Livi. Congratulations Livi! We love you!
