On April 23, Transition Academy students will do a fashion show at 7 p.m. outside the Women's Dillard's in the South Plains Mall.

The annual Burkhart Walk for Autism Awareness will take place at the John Walker Soccer Complex at 10th Street and Texas Tech Parkway from 2-4 p.m. April 26. 

"Autism Awareness Month is a meaningful time for the Burkhart Center not only because of its celebration of people living with or affected by autism, but also the supplementation of our yearly programming with both special events and increased community involvement," said Tawny Mills teacher at Transition Academy.
