Milford Special Olympians Recognized by Board

Members of the Milford Special Olympics Basketball teams, along with friends and family attended the April 4 School Committee meeting, where they were recognized for their efforts in this year's Special Olympics games.





The School Committee meeting of April 4 was brightened by the appearance of members of the 2012 Milford Special Olympics basketball teams, who were recognized for their efforts in this year's Special Olympics competition.

Jennifer Walsh, Coordinator of the Milford Special Olympics and a Milford vocational teacher, introduced the coaches and players for the five teams representing Milford. Both the Milford Dribblers and Milford Gamers took fourth-place in competition, while the Milford Hoopsters and Milford Masters earned Bronze Medals. The Milford Juniors were awarded a Silver Medal for their efforts. Brett Crosby, a member of the Milford Gamers, was selected to represent the state of Massachusetts at the Special Olympics National Conference.

"The Milford Special Olympians honor us with their presence, once a year and it's one of the best days of the year - one of the best meetings. It's always such a pleasure whenever you come in to see us and it's our honor to have you here this evening," said School Committee Chairman Patrick Holland.

Walsh noted that the competitions, held in Worcester, made for a "busy weekend" for the Olympians and applauded them for their hard work in preparation for the games saying, "They work really hard - they train from October to March."

The athletes were recognized individually and invited to approach members of the School Committee for congratulatory handshakes and comments. Especially endearing was Olympian, Claire Principe, whose effervescent personality was embodied in a series of "Hi's", which she afforded each person she encountered, including members of the Committee. One Board member commented that "she's got a future in politics" as she greeted each committee member.

At the conclusion of the recognition ceremonies, the Olympians received a rousing round of applause. Prior to their departure, Holland commented, "You make us all so proud, so thank you for coming in to see us tonight."
