Actor Brian Donovan takes a selfie with the University of Texas Permian Basin Students in Philanthropy. The student group invited Donovan to meet in the UTPB Student Activity Center Friday, where Donovan shared his story about his family, and his relationship with his sister Kelly Donovan who had Down syndrome. Donovan said that he has traveled around the world talking about inclusion, equality, and lifting each other up by talking about his sister. Donovan also showed clips from a documentary he made about his sister titled "Kelly's Hollywood," fulfilling her lifelong dream to perform on stage in Hollywood. Donovan is also showing the entire film at Cinergy Odessa on Saturday at 4pm. The film is also available on Amazon Prime.
