(KSL News) This morning our High 5 went to a man who's part of Best Buddies Utah. It's an organization that pairs up people with intellectual disabilities and peers without disabilities.

Brock Anderson was recognized for his time and efforts making a lifelong friendship.

Toni Geddes, the state director of Best Buddies Utah said, "Brock Anderson is just an awesome friend and a long-time member of the Best Buddies program. He befriended Stephen [White] about four years ago, and they've just maintained a friendship and have gone above and beyond Best Buddies standards."

Brock said, "It's been a life-changing experience. As the mission says, it enhances the lives of people with intellectual disabilities, but it has really enhanced my life."

Brock received a gift basket from Thanksgiving Point and a High 5 from our Coco Warner.
