My name is Marci Straughter. This is my 2nd time as a Project STIR statewide Trainer. Since I took the statewide STIR training in August 2011, I have taught 6 classes and trained about 50 people locally in Franklin County. I am on Employee Council at ARC South and I represent ARC South on the Franklin County Board’s Self Advocate Advisory Council. I helped start a self advocacy group when I lived in California and more recently helped to start TEAM Voice in Franklin County.
I presented at the SYNERGY conference in October 2012 on a panel and talked about how Project STIR has affected my life.
I was in a performing arts group in Englewood California and was in movies and commercials and did a commercial with Tiger Woods. I also took art lessons and like to use drawing as a way to express myself.
