“MGRAWSOME!” Time For Sayville Athletes at Special Olympics
In mid May, members of Sayville’s Athlete’s Helping Others organization came in great numbers to support four of Sayville’s own—Ashley Daigle, Jacob Feldman, Kaitlyn Finley, and Logan Hillery—who participated in the Special Olympic Spring Games at Southampton High School.
Encouraged by the sea of blue AHO shirts that filled the stands, along with their rallying cheers, the four Special Olympians each medaled in their events. “MGRAWSOME!” as Logan would say, his inspired contraction that means “Magnificent, great and awesome!”
“We had a wonderful day,” Mrs. Suzanne Hoss, AHO advisor said, “and thank you to the Athletes Helping Others participants for making this such a special day for our athletes.”
For approximately five years, Sayville’s AHO has been committed to giving back to both the school district and surrounding community, “by providing opportunities for student-athletes to serve, these young men and women make meaningful contributions to society. Teams as well as individual student-athletes are involved in numerous charity and community events, both in and out of school.”
By attending events such as these, AHO helps our students develop strong personal relations, and more importantly, allow them to discover that there is a purpose greater than oneself.
