Once again, Shelby High School's George Blanton Memorial Stadium was the scene of this year's Special Olympics. The clapping and cheers of the crowd, many volunteers and every participant beamed with happiness as they competed and won in their category. The Special Olympics was founded in 1968 by President Kennedy's sister, Eunice Kennedy Shriver in 1968.
In the Motor Development area of the Special Olympics, Sean Hargett smiles as he is given cheers, as he knocked down all ten of the bowling pins. It was a happy moment for this special young man.
