Scott Merrill has been part of Special Olympics for over 15 years. He works hard to fine-tune his skills in bowling and golf in hopes of doing his best in local, state and national competitions. Experiencing success on the links and in the bowling alley has made Scott a more confident and independent individual as well as an outstanding citizen in his hometown.
When he is not out on the golf course or at the local lanes, Scott can be found working as a bagger at a grocery store. He enjoys this experience because it gives him a chance to demonstrate that he is a hard worker while also meeting new people and seeing familiar faces. He is well known on and off the field for his pleasant personality and exceptional work ethic. Participation in sports has greatly enhanced all aspects of Scott’s life.
He is thankful to have opportunities that make him healthy, strong, confident, capable and independent. Although Scott has many years of training and competing under his belt, he knows that it is only the beginning and that many more years of sports await him in the future.
