Greenwood Hosts Special Olympics

As school buses descended upon Greenwood High School this morning for the start of the Special Olympics, the town and athletes were eagerly awaiting with anticipation.

Athletes competed in numerous events and were treated to not only an enthusiastic and cheering crowd, but also a student filled Olympic Village where competitors enjoyed food, fun and games.

GHS students from numerous clubs and associations assisted in the extracurricular activities as well as played a special part in the overall success of the event.

Previously held at Southside HIgh School in Fort Smith, the Special Olympics will call Greenwood home for the next 5 years.
