Meet Colton

Today PCA is excited to share with you the the story of Colton, another one of our talented artists at St Dominics Savio Academy. We have had the honor of featuring his awesome jelly fish on our t-shirts for the past week.

Colton's Artwork
10-year-old Colton is super silly, has a great sense of humor, is very sweet and gentle, loves his electronics and his family. He was diagnosed with autism at 2 years old. He loves everything that has to do with Toy Story and The Incredibles. Colton enjoys drawing pictures of Buzz Lightyear on his ipad. He loves to jump on inflatables, surf the web and make home videos on the computer.

Colton and his family first came out to Arizona in 2010 in order to attend St Dominics Savio Academy for a summer session. Their intent was to return back to Texas for the regular school year, however, after seeing the progress Colton made in a short time, they decided that they needed to make it a full time commitment. After spending another year in Texas, they left all their family and friends behind and made a new home in Phoenix.

When Colton first started at SDSA, he could hardly sit at a desk and attend to a task. He also had very little language skills that consisted mostly of scripting from movies. Now he can sit at his desk and be trusted not to dart away. He's also learning to read and talking significantly more in general. 

Colton would not be where he is today without the help of SDSA and here at PCA we are proud to help support both Colton and his school. There are only 6 days left in our campaign with SDSA, so check out Colton's shirt on our website now! If you like what you see, invest and know that you are truly making a difference in the life of Colton.
