Members of the Alliance of Student Athletes and the National Honor Society from Ligonier Valley High School assisted at the Winter Special Olympics held recently at Hidden Valley Resort.
Skiing students served as “buddies” for competing athletes, accompanying them throughout the day and making sure that they reported to the correct location for their events.
Other volunteers served lunch and assisted during the awards ceremony at the close of the day. The trip was organized by Margie Washnock, ASA sponsor, and Connor Maust, who serves as president of both organizations. Master Sgt. David Oates, ROTC instructor, chaperoned the event.
