A local entrepreneur with special needs has a new high profile customer.
Minister of Seniors and Community Supports Greg Melchin visited Sheena Small at her store Sheena's Sweets in High River Monday morning. Nineteen year-old Small says Melchin wanted to meet her in person after receiving one of her gift baskets and hearing about her at a conference he attended.
Small was born with William's Syndrome, a cognitive physical disability. She wrote her own business plan with the help from Highwood Business Development Corporation and manages one employee. She says business is going well.
Melchin told her he would pass her story on to inspire others. He also commissioned several gift baskets.
