Every person that was involved in the MCARS game last night made a contribution that is well beyond the time you gave. I know from just brief conversations with a few parents that for many of those children it was the first time they ever got to be in the spotlight, to be cheered for, to feel like a part of a team and be in a game. For many parents it was the first time they got to watch their child participate and to be a cheerleader for their child.
Thanks to the coaches of little league, MMS and FHS for bringing our student athletes. It was an opportunity for the young people of this county to see beyond themselves and to put someone else first. I think we may have planted the seeds in some young hearts to be future special education teachers, physical education teachers and coaches with hearts for including those that are “differently-abled.”
