Shellby,

On Monday, October 22nd, three sisters from the Theta Iota Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta at Florida Atlantic University were extended an invitation from Autism Speaks to attend the presidential debate held in Boca Raton! We were able to educate the crowd about autism and make the slogan "1 in 88 can't wait" be heard! We were even lucky enough to talk to Chris Matthews of MSNBC and let him know why this is a topic that needs to be addressed! We were even able to give a brief shout out on his show "Hardball"! The sisters present were Shellby Sweeney, Taylor Locascio and Allie Sautter.
