Special Olympics Story Gets Noticed

Brent Harris – A story appeared on the Wabash sports web site in February about the partnership between the College’s student-athletes and the Montgomery County Special Olympics organization. That story has been recognized by the NCAA as one of three top efforts by Division III schools and is currently entered in competition with stories from Pacific Lutheran and Wartburg.

The story talks about the efforts of our students to give back to the community and provide opportunities to others. What doesn’t appear at first is the opportunity provided to its author, Jocelyn Hopkinson ’15.

Jocelyn has spent the past seven months working with the office of communications and marketing at Wabash in addition to serving as the sports editor for The Bachelor. He has learned about writing on deadline by covering football and basketball throughout the school year. He’s also taken the time to write thoughtful pieces such as the Special Olympics story that is now receiving national attention thanks to the NCAA.

You can read Jocelyn’s original story regarding the Special Olympics program here. To vote for Jocelyn’s story and read more about the NCAA Division III partnership with Special Olympics, go here.

Jocelyn is a perfect example of what Wabash students do every day — work in and out of the classroom to make the most of their education.
