Drew Borecky, Share My Story

By Drew Borecky, Western Carolina University, Junior

I am Drew Borecky, a junior at Western Carolina University, and this was my first time volunteering with Special Olympics. I love it, getting to know the athletes and hanging out with them, especially when they are so considerate and thankful that we (teaching fellows) are here. My favorite memory from this weekend was at an award ceremony, one athlete won a silver medal and the look on his face was so awesome. He called out to his mom “I did it!” It is so cool seeing them come back with their medals.
