Veterans High Hosts Special Olympics Winter Games

 

HOUSTON COUNTY, GA – Special Olympics Winter Games will be held Jan. 18, 2013, 9:30 a.m. to about 2:00 p.m. at Veterans High School in the gym.  About 150 students in grades six through 12 have signed up to participate in the basketball competition.  The event will begin with a short program welcoming the student athletes, parents and teachers, followed by an introduction of each school.

This is the first time the school system will hold the Winter Olympics.  The event will allow student athletes the opportunity to qualify for the State Winter Special Olympics Games which will be held Jan. 25 - 27, 2013, in Atlanta.  About 20 Houston County youth will qualify for the state event during the local games. 

When not competing, the students will enjoy “Fun City” upstairs in the gym.  There will be face painting, arts and crafts and more for the young student athletes.

Westfield Football Team Donates Food for Families

 

The Westfield School varsity football team joined together during the Thanksgiving break for “Hornets for Hunger,” a service project led by senior football players, Evan Williams and Austin Jenkins. They helped coordinate the donation of food from the varsity football team and organized a set amount of groceries to provide a Thanksgiving meal as well as stock the pantry for 10 families. In all, over $2000 in food was donated and delivered to these families all living within a three-mile radius of our school. Members of the varsity footbal team, along with Head Coach Jones, Mr. William Carroll(Westfield Head of School), and several of the football players' parents delivered the food personally to these families whose names were provided by Perry Volunteer Outreach.
