By Scott Hammerstrom
e-Buddies Program Manager, Pennsylvania

This is a new feature of the e-Beat! We will profile an e-Buddy every month. If you would like to be profiled, please e-mail Scott Hammerstrom at

This month we are featuring Steven K. from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania!

Steven has been matched with his e-Buddy Erin since May, 2003.

Steven goes to the Best Buddies office in Bethlehem office once a week with his girlfriend Kathy (who also is an e-Buddy!). At the office, Best Buddies Program Manager Cara Blume helps Steven get his emails from Erin and type responses.

Steven loves his e-Buddy and looks forward to receiving emails.

When not writing his e-Buddy, Steven works at North Hampton Community College, where he also serves as the Buddy Director for the North Hampton chapter of Best Buddies. Steven works hard to raise money for Best Buddies, by asking local businesses for donations.

We asked Steven what he and Erin e-mail about, and this is what he said: "we talk about trips, holidays, special olympics."

Thanks, Steven, for being such a GREAT e-Buddy AND Best Buddy!
