Tribute to Bobby Ball
On November 16, 2013, the State of Idaho lost one of its most influential Disability Advocates, Bobby Ball. Bobby was an amazing individual who dedicated her life to educating others on the abilities of individuals with disabilities. The Idaho SILC will miss her dearly. We know that she is in God's arms.
