IHSAA, Special Olympics Indiana create partnership


12:00 AM, Dec. 18, 2012 EST

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana High School Athletic Association and Special Olympics Indiana say a new partnership should create new learning experiences for athletes from both groups.

The IHSAA said Monday the partnership originated with its Student Advisory Committee, a group of 18 student-athletes who represent the 160,000 participants around the state as a liaison to the IHSAA staff and board. The IHSAA will encourage its 410 member schools and their athletes and coaches to participate in existing Special Olympics events, create their own events and lend support in other ways to Special Olympics Indiana. Special Olympics Indiana President Mike Furnish says the partnership should create more acceptance for students with special needs in their schools and motivate them to get involved in the Special Olympics.
