4 FHS students received letter jackets for Special Olympics
Confidence, skill and determination are common benefits of involvement with sports. For people with intellectual or physical disabilities, Special Olympics is a place where they have an opportunity to participate in their communities and develop a belief in themselves. It is an international organization created to help people develop self-confidence, social skills, and a sense of personal accomplishment.

Audrey Crues and Jaison Randal participated in swimming, bowling and athletics. Teresa Byrd and Susan Bode were the coaches with the help of parent Kristen Miller.
