Washington Township High School Class of 2006 graduate Pete Brodzinski will share his experiences of navigating life with Down Syndrome during a series of assemblies at Bunker Hill Middle School on Wednesday, March 18. Brodzinski, whose mother, Jan Brodzinski, is a special education teacher at WTHS and whose brother, Greg, is the new Philadelphia Phillies bullpen catcher and catching coach, will be a featured speaker as part of the school’s Building Better People initiative.
He will speak to 8th graders during the first period (8:02 a.m.), 7th graders during the second period (8:54 a.m.) and 6th graders during the eighth period (2:06 p.m.). His appearance was arranged by Student Assistance Coordinator Mike Petticrew. Brodzinski has appeared on several episodes of ABC’s hit show “What Would You Do?” and was recently featured for a friendship he has formed with new Phillies manager Joe Girardi.
