There’s no guarantee as to when passion will find you. For Elizabeth Knightly, it was in high school when she began volunteering with Special Olympics along with her Junior Civitan club. Now decades later, Knightly considers her involvement with the organization to be a core part of her identity. After moving to North Carolina, Knightly was reintroduced to Special Olympics by a colleague who shared her passion for the organization. Once she saw the joy of the Special Olympics athletes again, it was easy for her to dive right back in to volunteering.
