On February 20, 2015 Sexsmith Secondary's Interact club sent six members (Brittney Bugnet, Jessica Hiscock, Issabelle McLaren, Cody Repas, Annika Rorem, and Shayla Salaki) to assist in the Alberta Winter Special Olympic Games in Grande Prairie. These members were a part of the welcome team, helping athletes settle into their hotels and their rooms, as well as supplying them with complementary Special Olympics swag. The Interactors also played an important role in helping the Opening Ceremony run smoothly. They escorted athletes to their banquet seats, to their viewing areas, and then back to their buses, ensuring that all the athletes knew where to go and got there accordingly. This was a very rewarding experience for the students involved. They immensely enjoyed interacting, dancing, and conversing with the athletes.
Learning about the sports and activities the athletes participated in was very enlightening and educating for the members. They loved volunteering and hope to do it again in the future.Thank you Interact Club for your ongoing commitment to make a difference in our world and community!
