On Friday, November 3, the local Special Olympics took place at Madison County High School, an event where special needs kids come together and compete in events against each other. The event was hosted by Mrs. Julie Shadburn, and consisted of three groups of volunteers. The Pilot Club prepared the food, the Anchor Club helped with the games, and Adaptive PE assisted with the games. MCHS hosted yet another fun filled year for the kids in the main gym, as students from Danielsville, Comer, Colbert, and Ila joined in on the fun.The younger athletes competed in wall ball, a smaller version of basketball, and corn hole. After the competition, each athlete received a small medal, but the faces of all the athletes ultimately stole the show. Upon hearing their name called, each athlete ran up to the podium, and anxiously awaiting for their medal. After a fun filled day for the young ones,the high school students competed. A close game of basketball. Both teams received awards for participation.
