On October 10th, the Special Education students went to compete at the Special Olympics. They competed together in five different events including short putt, long putt, wood, iron, and chip. Every student excelled, earning ribbons for their outstanding participation. The students enjoyed a picnic afterwards to celebrate their achievements.

Before leaving to compete, students in class on the English hall went out into the hallways and made a spirit tunnel to send the students on their way. “I’m so proud of the special athletes and student body for supporting them,” Lindsey Lovvorn, special education teacher, said.

Participants included Will Bezkor, Katlyn Paine, Binh Nguyen, Steve Merdock, Rebecca Bradley, Laura Ann Davenport, Emily Duncan, Si Nelson, Trent Key, Bryan Avery, Ali Goozee, Chandler Herrero, and Christian Gay. The students were recognized at the Pep Rally the following day, October 11th. Lovvorn added, “It was a wonderful day for all students. Each got to shine in their own way.”

Congratulations to all Special Education students for a successful Special Olympics!
