John W. Danforth Company

Power of our People Award Presented to Caleb Spark

The Power of our People Award was recently presented to Danforth’s Caleb Spark.

Caleb (along with his wife Olivia) exemplify high character, compassion and understanding as displayed on their wedding day. While taking pictures in a local park they were approached by a 5 year old autistic girl named Layla who thought Olivia was a princess. They took time from their most special day to be kind and to “play” along making this little girl’s day. This story has gone viral and Cal and Olivia have become friends with Layla and her family and continue to make her dreams come true. This story has appeared on several local and even national news stations. This is a true example of character and community and someone Danforth can be proud of.
