“I am so proud of Traci for all she has accomplished, and I honor her and wish her 20 more years with us,” said Dennis Anderson, owner and operator of the Landfall McDonald’s, in the release.

Knowles prides herself on being on time for every shift she works and for being named “Crew Member of the Month” on more than one occasion, McDonald’s officials said in the release.

“Knowles was born on Oct. 11, 1970 to Larry and Becky Knowles with Down Syndrome but is a “high functioning” young lady,” officials said in the release, adding that her family is proud at all that she has accomplished.

Aside from helping her family, Traci Knowles is very active in Special Olympics. Over the past several years she has earned Gold Medals in Bowling, Swimming and Bocce Ball.
