“Raising Awareness of Down Syndrome throughout N.E. Mississippi”
Welcome and thank you for visiting NEMDSS.org. The families of the Northeast Mississippi Down Syndrome Society invite you to spend some time browsing through our website to learn more about Down syndrome, our non-profit organization, and the programs and many activities that we offer.
The 2012 Buddy Walk™ was a huge success. We would like to thank our sponsors, friends and the donations to the silent auction.
We will post pictures from the event soon!
NEMDSS Star of the Month
Emma Clara-Lynn ColemanEmma Coleman lights up the room with her presence. She is the beautiful princess daughter of Clay and Jinnie Coleman of Mantachie, MS. At eight years old, Emma loves to spend time with her family. She enjoys playing with her big brother Cody, especially when he allows her to play with his drums and guitar. According to her mom, Emma likes to aggravate her big sister, Shelbie, but only because she is like her second mama and loves Emma very much.
Emma loves music and dance. She is also a very good swimmer as long as her floaties are on. She is a social butterfly and makes friends very easily. In the Fall each year, she becomes a Daddy's girl and helps him root for their Tennessee Volunteers in between naps and snuggling.
Emma's mother, Jinnie serves on the NEMDSS Board of Directors where she serves as treasurer.
