The communications major also just got accepted into the Healthy Diploma program, a 15-credit concentration that teaches on the dimensions of health and the nation’s leading health concerns. Plus, he’s interned with the White River Township Fire Department and has another internship opportunity planned with the Marion County Sheriff’s Department. Finally, as part of the Team Indiana swim team, Price will represent the state at the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games in Orlando!
