Alana Curth

Alana Curth, a senior at Lindbergh High School who receives services from SSD, has overcome many physical and educational challenges, starting in her early childhood.

As Alana progresses through high school, she has used assistive technology to facilitate her learning and achieve success in the general education classroom, according to SSD teacher Joyce Colombo, who nominated Alana for the Rosemary Zander Award.

Not only has Alana progressed academically, but her extracurricular activities and volunteer work have kept her very busy. She has been participating in the Equine Assistant Therapy Program since the age of 6.

Alana has completed the A+ Tutoring Program and completed 50 hours of community service. She was also nominated and selected for the Missouri Youth Leadership Forum.

“After the leadership weekend, Alana was invited to sit on the question-and-answer panel at the University of Missouri-St. Louis regarding how her disability impacts her in the school setting, what it is like to be a student with a disability, and accommodations,” said Colombo. “Alana’s advocacy and communication skills have become phenomenal.”
