Bethany Burnette

This young lady is an inspiration. She has over come many challenges to get to where she is today. As a young girl, everybody just thought she was “a dumb kid” or “a little slow” and that she would never finish school. Bethany was shy in school but she would shine on stage. She was into acting, singing, dancing, and most of all beauty pageants. Finally in high school one of her teachers mentioned to her parents that she might be Autistic. Sure enough, the doctor confirmed it. Now is a recording artist who performs at many different venues. She has even performed the National Anthem at a Mississippi Surge hockey game.
