Governor's is getting ready to host our yearly Special Olympics. More than 1,000 athletes, representing more than 100 teams from across the state, gather to compete in a series of round-robin soccer matches. As hosts, our students - all volunteers - are responsible for arranging the opening ceremonies, running "Olympic Town," organizing public relations activities, registering athletes, feeding participants and overseeing the competitions.
Set-up is taking place on Saturday, and the event itself on Sunday. It looks like the weather is going to cooperate, and everywhere on campus (including the library!) you can see cheerful students carrying their bright green Special Olympics t-shirts. The excitement is certainly building! We're sure this year's Olympics will be as wonderful as last year's - just look at this photo from 2009 - and smiles will certainly abound.
