New Friendships Made at 2012 Special Olympics

As the semester comes to an end there are  not a lack of service opportunities for the students  of Wheeling Jesuit.  Last weekend we hosted the 2012  Special Olympics on a beautiful spring day.  There were many  causes of excitement during the activities with new friendships  being formed between the Olympians and student athletes.   The HESS and Prison Ministry programs both celebrated their semester conclusion with ice-cream parties.  HESS mentors and mentees watched a slide show reviewing the year, and the incarcerated youth of the Prison Ministry program made sundaes and played games of Catchphrase.  Although everyone will be missed over the summer, things will pick back up in the fall.  Athletes walk a lap with the torch to begin the 2012 Special Olympics
