I wanted to share a special thank you with you for the efforts of Christina Menke and the National Honor Society. These are truly special people. In early November a group of over 20 National Honor Society members made the trip to Washington High School for one of our sports event days. High school volunteer buddies are the life blood of our program and these students were awesome. Every student engaged their special athlete and enthusiastically explored a variety of sports opportunities with them. It is our hope to have a sports event day at New Haven High School at some point in March, April or May of 2020 to once again work with these special students. I have included some pictures of Shamrocks in action at our event day. I can tell you our leadership team was VERY impressed.
On Saturday, December 7, these same National Honor Society students held the Jingle Jog event to benefit All Abilities Athletics -- what a great event. The run/walk event, the ugly sweater and the awards ceremony, not to mention the awesome treats -- everything was first class. The Shamrock students had some great interaction with our AAA athletes in attendance.
I am so proud of our partnership with Christina Menke and the NHS students and look forward to working with them in 2020. I would also point out that NH grads Julia McIntyre, Lexi Oetterer, Kamryn Poe still help out when home from school. We love the Shamrocks -- send us more!
