Youth volunteer at the Special Olympics
On August 5, Lookout Mountain Youth Services Center (LMYSC) brought seven youth to Lakewood Park for the Special Olympics end of season softball tournament. The LMYSC youth modeled excellent leadership, social responsibility and community engagement with the families, the athletes and staff of this Special Olympics Event. The youth kept score of the games and handed out ribbons to the top four winners of the championship bracket. The event coordinators were so pleased with the support provided by the youth, that they were asked to volunteer again at an event later in August, and again in October.
