Special Olympics Georgia and Y-LEAD

Great day at Rotary!  We appreciated having Liz Smith and Lewis Gordon to tell us about Special Olympics Georgia.  Liz serves as the volunteer and event manager and Lewis Gordan has participated for almost 30 years and has 9 gold medals to date!  We were also honored to have Maria Staley and some Y-LEAD (Youth Leadership Exploration and Development) members with us today from Lowndes Middle School.  This program is for 7th and 8th graders that exhibit service and character attributes.  The 7th grade year focuses mainly on service and the 8th grade year shifts more towards leadership.  Refreshing to see young people involved in service and we hope they will be in the Interact Club when they get to high school.
