Tanner Krupp wants people to know that LCBDD was there for his family.
Tanner Krupp isn’t shy about his support of the Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities (LCBDD).
The Newark High School graduate wants everyone to know that the board has helped his family and many others.
Tanner, 20, and his mother Wanda Krupp recently set up a display at her shop with informational brochures about the board and the resources it provides. They set up a similar table at this high school graduation party.
Tanner has been supported by the board since he was born and diagnosed with Down syndrome.
During the week, he’s participating in Project SEARCH, a year-long employment exploration program at Licking Memorial Hospital. He also works at Hope Farm in Granville.
A dedicated country music fan, he takes karate and is active in Licking County Special Olympics.
Over the years, LCBDD has been there for him as he went through school and prepared for the next step after high school, Wanda said.
“(LCBDD) has held our hands and guided us every step of the way,” she said.
