May 26, 2015

The Stevens HS JROTC unit received the Debbie Watson Special Olympics Volunteer of the Year award for their enduring and unwavering support to the Northside Special Olympics. The cadets, under the direction of Master Sergeant George Hickman, have been volunteering for at least six years. According to Donna Umhoefer, Special Olympics Coordinator, the group was presented the award for their enthusiasm, desire, and friendship with the athletes. “They not only volunteer on the days that Stevens participates, but also during our elementary and middle school events as well,” she said. “They even attended a special safety training to ensure that their role with the athletes at a bowling event was understood and completed correctly. Their love for the athletes is apparent.”
