JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Students at Valley View High School got to meet their new buddies Wednesday.

Reveal Day was held at Valley View for their Best Buddies Arkansas program.

The program is used to form relationships between special needs students and students without disabilities to promote friendships and leadership.

Best Buddies is set up as a yearlong partnership, but State Director for the nonprofit Angela Kremers said the friendships usually go beyond that time frame.

The reveal had a Halloween and fall theme.
