“Her name is Caroline and I loved watching her do all the events and trying her hardest at all times to keep a smile on her face” ~ Madison Bradley Mrs. Greenbrier High School

On March 25th, Greenbrier held the annual event called Special Olympics which gives special needs students a chance to have a fun outside experience. The whole day is dedicated for the students to interact with others and play various sports. Nina Pantano, a sophomore says, on special Olympics day she would rather have a buddy because, “I just want to be able to have an impact on a child”. Win or lose, each student will be rewarded with a ribbon. Greenbrier started this event years ago, but different schools from Columbia County join the fun because of Mrs.Seymour. She started this event and even after retirement she still has the drive to plan the Olympics. The student body is chosen to help with this event after the sign-up is posted. Sam Shultz a senior says, “Special Olympics helps out with Beta Club hours but people are so willing to help, I did not get the chance to signup.” The drive of each student shows our student body is dedicated to brighten other people’s day. If a student refrains from ISS or OSS and is present in class with good grades, they are allowed to help out with the special events. Another senior that has helped out for four years states, “I continue to help because I love to see the reaction of each child as they compete.” The buddy can have up to two students helping out which is why there are so many students needed for this event. Along with buddies, they offer different jobs such as being a runner, a timer, a score keeper, concessions, and equipment manager, ect. At the end of the day, Special Olympics brought huge smiles to all who participated.
