“Elijah does fantastic work for the people of Missouri every day. He is an incredible advocate for the Down Syndrome community, and I was honored to ask him to accept an appointment to serve on the Governor’s Council on Disability,” said Governor Eric Greitens.

The Governor´s Council on Disability (GCD) promotes full participation and inclusion of the nearly 1 million Missourians with disabilities in all aspects of community life by educating citizens, businesses, schools, universities and others of their rights and responsibilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act. For more information, visit disability.mo.gov/gcd.

“Elijah has been a great addition to our team. He keeps our uniforms washed, the basketball floor swept, and runs the shot clock for our practices. While his work goes unnoticed by the outside world, our student-athletes and coaches appreciate all that he does for us. The Lincoln University men’s basketball program is better because Elijah Mayfield is a part of it!” said John Moseley, Director of Athletics/Head Men’s Basketball Coach at Lincoln University.

“Elijah Mayfield and his family are a blessing to the United Way and this entire community!  Elijah and his father, Todd, have teamed up to represent the Special Learning Center and the United Way of Central Missouri at hundreds of events for the last several years–and in 2015 Elijah was featured in the United Way Campaign video.  Elijah is truly a local hero who inspires and motivates people through his passion and zest for life.  He has chosen to share his extraordinary gifts and abilities to help others.  Elijah once spoke to a group of 400 United Way supporters and there was not a dry eye in the room as he shared that “Sometimes it has been hard to have Downs Syndrome”.  But it was clear to everyone at that event, and everyone who is blessed to know Elijah, that he is going to continue to do amazing things and our world will be changed for the better because of him,” said Ann Bax, President/CPO, United Way of Central Missouri.
