Jenks High School 2013 graduate Tafv Quiett is set to appear on Broadway Sept. 12, as part of the National Down Syndrome Society’s annual Times Square video presentation.

The featured photographs highlight children, teens, and adults with Down Syndrome. The program is designed to remind the world in a big way about the contributions and milestones of people with Down Syndrome.

“This video is a terrific way to showcase some of the incredible individuals with Down Syndrome living in our communities across the country,’ said NDSS President and CEO Kandi Pickard. “It is something the community looks forward to every year.”

The photo of Tavf Quiett was selected as one of 500 photographs that will appear in the video, which is streamed lived on the NDSS social media accounts from the heart of Times Square in New York City.

The Times Square video presentation kicks off Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. The video presentation will be followed by the New York City Buddy Walk, which will take place virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Buddy Walk events will be held virtually in more than 150 cities across the country, as well as select international locations. There is expected to be more than 325,000 people participating in the events around the globe.
