Inclusion Campaign: Meet Kendall

Kendall Noble is curious, athletic, very smart and loves to meet new people. He has autism and getting to know him is amazing. Kendall has always exhibited many classic autistic behaviors which can be odd and off-putting to people who have not been exposed to kids on the autistic spectrum. He has a lot of friends with similar disabilities and with the same underlying goodness that is a pleasure to be with. There is a big reward for those who accept some behavioral differences and get to know these remarkable people.

Read Kendall's story, presented by The Noble Family, here.

Local nonprofit Valley Life for All is working to build inclusive communities where people of all abilities belong and contribute. Request a training or join the conversation at www.valleylifeforall.org or #voicability4all.

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Raleigh now serves on KDNK's board of directors and as editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper, The Sopris Sun.
